  1. Hello! I absolutely loved this. I always forget to be thankful for the small things in life. Sometimes it’s hard to be thankful when things go wrong in life. I will try to be more mindful!
    I am very thankful I have found this great group !

  2. Glad you had a wonderful month, Christie. It’s truly awesome to have good health to enjoy nature, and share good food with good friends and family. Signs of spring such as birds tweeting, and buds on trees, made me smile. There is a Wellness link up tomorrow Wednesday, April 10 on my blog. Optional prompt Healthy Mind. Please feel free to link up. #MLSTL

    • So much to be grateful for, Natalie. Good health, family, and nature are definitely at the top of my list.I believe I have a post that will fit well with this week’s prompt. I’ll link up. Thanks for the reminder!

  3. Hi Christie – I always love your gratitude posts – all small things, but each lovely in their own way. Loved your gorgeous grandson being happy to pose with the “old folks” even though he was 17. Lovely food pics – that first salad looked delicious and glad your weather is improving.
    Thanks for linking up with us at MLSTL and I’ve shared on my SM 🙂

    • Thank you Leanne. Ryelee is a great kid. We’ve been blessed with 10 wonderful, unique grandchildren that all live close by. Now that’s something to be grateful for! I am also grateful for #MLSTL and the warm, wise community there.

  4. Hi Christie, I love your ‘thank you notes’ and always look forward to them. You’ve had a lovely month and there is always so much to be grateful for. I thank you for reminding me and for sharing your thoughts at #MLSTL. I’m sure you will be looking forward to Summer but you do live in a beautiful part of the world.

    • Hello Sue. It is beautiful here, and truth be told, I enjoy the change of seasons. I must say winter is my most challenging time though, and I am always happy to see spring. Thanks again for #MLSTL. I’m off to read some posts now.

  5. So often we forget to be thankful, even for the little things. I love your post and believe it’s something we should all do. I am thankful for so many things on a daily basis but most of all, I am thankful for every morning that I wake up to see another day. So many are robbed of this gift and at an early age.

    Your post inspired me to create my own gratitude post. Thanks, Christie!

    • I’m so happy to hear that Bren. I’ll be watching for your gratitude post. I agree that every day is a precious gift. I start each day with a gratitude meditation, and at the top of the list is that I woke up to another day. Happy day!

  6. Yum, that salad looked delicious! This week my husband made me a special pico that I use as my “salsa” on chips. He used heirloom tomatoes. Absolutely delicious.

  7. These thank you note posts are so touching. And have a way of making me think of similar things I am grateful for.

    Oh, that gorgeous view of the low hanging clouds, the mountains and the trees. Even more dramatic in black and white. Today our mountains are partially obscured by blowing dust, which isn’t nearly as pretty but is kind of unique. And reminds me to be grateful for a sound roof over my head.

    I am sore today. But happily so. I ran at the gym yesterday in prep for an upcoming 5K. Thankful to still be able to run. Glad you enjoyed a good cross country run, too.

    I am grateful to you for sharing the photo and thought of zoodles with avocado sauce. I usually just saute mine with onions. This sounds like a delicious option.

    • Hello Leslie. I too am grateful for a sound roof over my head. We’ve had a lot of rain and wind lately! Good luck on your 5K. I actually love that work-out sore feeling, reminding me that I did work my body. I too am profoundly grateful for a healthy body that can still run. We are blessed indeed. Have a glorious week!

  8. Lots of things made me smile this week Christie! Our youngest daughter came home for the weekend and we enjoyed having her with us. I saw my granddaughter for the first time in over a month and she’s growing up so fast. I just published my weekly winners and losers on my blog and cover lots of these points 🙂 . Love your positivity in your post! #mlstl

  9. Christie, you are definitely the youngest looking grandmother I have ever seen. Happy Birthday to your grandson. And that photo of Mother Nature is majestic!!
