1. What are you thankful for today? Sunshine, literally. It’s been gloomy and wet around here for too long.
    Do you have a regular gratitude practice? What is it? I’m grateful by nature, but I don’t have a particular practice– I just say thank you often. Because I can.
    What else is on your mind? Anything at all…I just love to hear from you. I enjoy posts with small glimpses into how people live their lives. This would be one of those posts. Thanks!

    • Congratulations on getting some sunshine, Ally. We’re still in the midst of clouds and rain…which we desperately need, so I am trying to be grateful for that…but I’m ready for sunshine too. Saying thank you often is such an easy, wonderfully kind thing to do. And thank you for the kind words about my blog post. I am grateful for you. 🙂

  2. How joyful to see your gratitude practice played out in photos. My gratitude practice is nightly when I fall into bed and pull up the covers. Telling myself what I’m grateful for is another way of reviewing my day. Top of my list is always when I’ve had a chance to talk to my kids (who live busy busy lives far away from me). Having a clean, warm bed to fall into is always worth a moment of gratitude.

    • That’s a wonderful gratitude practice. I love climbing into bed at night and fully appreciating a comfortable bed, especially at the end of a busy day. And, of course, time with the grown children is always a plus.

    I love seeing the things you’re grateful for! My friend who’s daughter died way too soon is always reminded of her by hearts, so I forwarded the heart on the mountain to her.💜
    Last year for Father’s Day Haley gave Mark a box of tulips from the tulip festival at Thanksgiving Point. They are in full bloom now!

  4. Ya’ll are becoming quite the rock painters! That bee is just adorable. I need to paint some more rocks. It’s very enjoyable and relaxing for me.

    There sure is a family resemblance between Ashley, Piper and Tessa. Beautiful girls. Love your spring nails. I am trying to take better care of my nails but I am so hard on them!!

    Thanksgiving Point is gorgeous. That tree looks like something in the LOTR or The Hobbit. Kind of like a giant bonsai. What a wonderful space to meander and share your gratitude.

    • The rock painting was so fun Leslie. I don’t consider myself particularly artistic, but with a little inspiration from the grandchildren (and the Internet), I did all right. And the girls…well, I was super impressed with their talent. Mostly, of course, it was just fun doing a project together. When they were younger, we’d have sleepovers and plan art projects, but we haven’t done that in a long time.

      The tulip festival was delightful, and you’re right the perfect place to feel and share gratitude.
