Thankful for the little things

I had a busy week last week (and the week before) and was touched by so many little things that wanted to share some of them.

A sister who brings soup by and stays to rubs my head when I have a horrible headache.

A friend who made me Neiman Marcus cookies because she knew that I had been having a tough time and wanted to treat me to something I enjoy (or because I guilted her into making them!).

A Mother-in-law that offers to watch my daughter extra for me so I can get some work done before the holidays roll around.

A few new creative blogs that I have come across like this one Fryd + Design and Cheeky Magpie (one Christina sent me the link to).

Ideas that bloggers share like making a Thankfulness tree or garland. So many have shared these that I don't even know who all to give credit to! I know Just a Girl linked to several if you want to check it out here. I took my crow off my tree and we have been writing down things we are thankful for at dinnertime and putting on the tree.

A 3 year old that is learning what it means to be thankful. She has already gone through the basics like "Mom and Dad" and "food" so it was time for her to be thankful for....

Thank you Victoria for reminding us all to be Thankful for even the little things. . . because they add up and make a large part of our lives!

I had a busy week too, but never too busy to be thankful. Hope you have a much better week this week. Jackie

Thankfulness makes us closer to our source of strength and makes us realize that life is so good. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
