I am filled with gratitude for the rain last night and the sunshine this morning.
I am filled with gratitude for a loving, hardworking husband who spent his day off making space for our watermelon starts to grow.
I am filled with gratitude because there is new grass growing in our front yard.
I am filled with gratitude because we harvested the first peppers from our garden today.
I am filled with gratitude because I have a energetic, intelligent, inquisitive, imaginative toddler who frequently tests my patience.
I am filled with gratitude because my parents will be here with us in less than a week.
I'm filled with gratitude because my husband cooked me a fantastic and simple dinner tonight.
I'm filled with gratitude for all the little moments I get to share with my daughter (like watching this little hummingbird take a bath in the sprinkler while we were watering our vegetables a few weeks ago).
Can you hear L. talking about the bird and then running to get her camera? "Excuse me mom, 'scuse me. I need to take a picture."
And, finally, I am filled with gratitude because I'm going to go to sleep as soon as the above mentioned toddler falls asleep and I am looking forward to sharing the morning with wonderful friends.
