Gratitude Sunday

Hello! Just wanted to pop in and give a quick list of my gratitudes for this week. This week has been a mighty mixture of tremendous fun and debilitating stress, which made looking for (and finding) the good things in the week that much more important. This week I have been grateful.....
  • That there is snow on Mt. Hood again! Finally! It has been looking oh-so-bare.....
  • For the beauty of Oregon.
  • For October! October is always full of so much excitement, fun events, and lovely color. I just love it.
  • For the feel I get after a good run.
  • For my sister, who had the perfect intuition to send me a care package exactly when I needed a little cheer.
  • For freshly cleaned sheets... seriously, is there anything better?
  • For dancing with friends.
  • For my sweet little Finn who, at not even eight, often seems to be much wiser than I.
  • For quiet moments, to read and to think, to sit and to just be.
What have you felt grateful for this week?
