Gratitude Practice

This has been a very tough week for me both physically and emotionally. After a week of crazy travel, quickly followed by the holidays, plus some personal issues, I am ready for a break. We are spending the rest of 2007 in the mountains enjoying the winter activities - skiing, making snowmen, and drinking hot chocolate! Hope you are also enjoying the last weekend of 2007.

This week I am grateful for my little family.

I am unbelievably grateful for my very supportive husband who is always there for me. Sometimes I am amazed at how well he puts up with my frequent crankiness. This week he set aside his own desires to make sure I got what I needed (even before I recognized what I needed!).

I was also reminded this week of how lucky I am to have my two beautiful children. I am so grateful that I was able to bring them into this world with so little effort and that they are healthy, strong, and capable (even if they seem a bit too capable at times!). Sometimes I take it for granted how lucky I am to have them.

I hope you find time this week for your own gratitude practice.

Hope you are enjoying the last minutes of 2007 in peace and happiness with your family.

BTW - I love your weekly gratitude practices. I think I might have to steal that idea (if it's ok with you, of course).

We all have so much to be grateful for! I know that I often take so many things for granted. Thanks for sharing your heart with us on your blog.

BTW, I got your Christmas card and it is so cute!!!
