Simple abundance - finding gratitude despite the hustle and bustle

This was one long week for me, with EmDee working second shift and all the evening routine and mothering done solo...my heart goes out to military families and the like who have children whose fathers are gone for long periods of time. Every night Sweetpea walked the house looking for daddy, asking for daddy, missing daddy. It was with a grateful heart and a sigh of relief that I greated them Friday, back together again. Here are some other entries from my gratitude journal this week:

*Hushed quiet mornings, ground covered with a light dusting of snow, air crisp in my lungs*

*full moon, so bright and beautiful*

*sipping coffee by the light of the Christmas tree*

*love you, said for the first time without prompting, as we were saying goodbye*

*a sunset so bright and glorious that even my cell phone camera could capture it*

What are you thankful for this week?

Beautiful post! I'm thankful for snow, and happy and healthy children, and a husband that I love and who loves me, among other things.
