Sunday Gratitudes

Happy Sunday! Hope you all had a great week. Here are a few of the things that I have felt grateful for this week:
  • Flowers, flowers everywhere! Spring is on its way!!
  • That it is no longer dark out when I leave for work in the mornings. It makes it so much easier.
  • That Phoebe's 5th birthday party was a success, and that it is over. Of course I love throwing my children birthday parties, but I am also always relieved when it is all said and done. Phew.
  • That spring break is right around the corner. We have a mini adventure planned, and I am very excited!
  • My sweet Phoebe. She is always so full of joy and excitement. It's still hard for me to believe that she is already five! I am trying to soak up my days at home with her while I can, as she will be off to kinder in the fall.
  • Hope. Life has thrown a lot of punches at me lately, but I feel like things always seem to work out. They may not work out exactly the way that I want them to, but they work out nonetheless. Over the past few months, my worries have started to subside. Instead, I feel hopeful that life will lead me where I need to go and that in the end, everything will be just fine.

What have you felt grateful for this week?
