At long last, I am back.
I want to share some about what has been happening for me over the past few months, but right now, I am slowly and gently coming out of my quietness. Today, I thought a good place to begin would be by offering gratitude.
I am grateful for vegetables growing in the garden, for new flowers sprouting, and for the smell of lavender.
I am grateful for stillness.
I am grateful for increasing hours of uninterrupted sleep.
I am grateful for my morning cup of tea.
I am grateful for baby kisses.
I am so very grateful for all of the calls, emails, facebook messages, and comments from people who wanted to check in with me during my absence.
I am grateful for my mom, who continues to amaze and inspire me with the depth of her love and her generosity.
I am grateful for my husband - for his unwavering love, for his steadiness, for his confidence, for his unique way of embracing life, and for the big and little ways he offers his heart, each and every day.
I am grateful for Thea, and for the ways she encourages me to open my heart wider, to grow, and to be present for what each moment brings.
What are you feeling grateful for today?
