Giving thanks for the small things

Alana In Love

+ a wonderful Mr who takes my kiddos out so I can have a couple of hours to myself
+said Mr who comes thrifting with me - even though he hates it!
+wonderful friends I've made on this interweb
+a quiet cup of coffee by myself early in the morning when everyone else is asleep,
& it's just me and the birds
+sweet letters from friends
+sweet kisses from my girls
+late night painting sessions

sometimes it's the small things that matter the most - what are you grateful for today??


  1. I love all these same exact things!  Great minds do think alike ...

  2. Many, many little things to be thankful for
