I read this quote last night..."Gratitude turns what you have into enough" I love it. This morning I feel full of gratitude. It may not be 75-degrees out with green grass, but the sun is shining bright in the big blue sky and that is enough. It's the small things that should be enough to fill you with gratitude. Here's the little things that are simply enough for me this week....
1. Signs of Spring-
If you look, they are every where right now. This week I got to walk to pick up the girls more than I had to drive. Sure sign of spring. We saw our first robin...total first sign of spring. The return of wearing flip flops because the snow has melted. Sign of spring. Now, I know in some places, temperatures in the fifties mean it's time to wear boots and jackets, but here it is when you can get away with no socks and just a sweatshirt. This morning on my run there were signs of spring everywhere. So many I had to stop a couple times to snap a photo or two...
|Good morning Bridger Mountains. I hear you beginning to call my name. Be patient...you need to melt a little more snow before I head up to play.|
2. My girls-
|Rockin some cool new hats from Grandma J.|
As you can see from Ava's face, I was not supposed to see them. I was promptly told to leave. Looking forward to the show on Sunday. Little moments like that...they are enough.
3. Spring Cleaning and Home Projects.
As I mentioned last time I have been in full cleaning out mode. The weekend was for the girls and a couple days ago I took to my own closet. Within a hour I had two huge garbage bags full of clothes, shoes and purses to get rid of. It felt good. I call it my, "I'm 35 now clothes clean out" I think it helped that I had the show 'What Not To Wear' on as I did my purge. Something about hearing Stacy and Clinton talk about others ridiculous wardrobes helps me to get the ridiculousness (is that a word?) out of my own. Maybe it's because of my years in retail, but I love an organized closet...
|I only can show my side...Matt's...not so organized.|
As you can see it is not complete yet. For some reason I imagined one roll of tape would finish the whole thing. Three rolls in and I'm almost done. I love how it is turning out. Who would have thought duct tape, right?
And, yes...those are mustaches you are seeing. It was a good use of the silly duct tape my mom gave Matt for Christmas. And, it will be easy to replace when we are over it. For now it adds a quirky accent. That's just how we roll.
4. The Return of Yoga.
After a few week hiatus the spring session of yoga began. Breath of fire, deep mediation, strong poses. Enough said. Namaste.
5. A New Photo Book...
I usually do a photo book at the end of each year. I had finally begun my 2013 book. I wanted to get winter and our vacation part done before we hit birthday and summer season. As I was working on it I got a coupon for a free 20-page book. This was too good of an offer to pass up, so I decided to do our vacation as it's own book this year. It came in the mail yesterday and we got to re-live our trip yet again. Love it.
The weekend is approaching and it will be full. Easter egg dyeing, making yummy desserts for Easter and of course being the bunny, which is always a favorite of mine. And, I don't think we'll be hiding eggs in snow this year, so there's a bonus.
Hope this week fills you with gratitude and happiness. Take what you have and make it enough. Happy day to ya.
