From the Gratitude Journal. . .
Today, I am thankful for:
~for the wonderful lilac aroma wafting throughout the outdoors (and which I brought indoors too).
~for God's guidance, and giving me the knowledge to know how to cut back on my stress with gardening by doing a little every day vs. all of it in one long day, and leaving the dirty dishes for the kids and looking the other way....giving me the strength to get up extra early to avoid the heat...giving me a bountiful garden...
~for the colors that are reappearing on the front porch.
~for the spearmint in my garden and iced tea made with it.
~for the pounds I'll lose this summer with all this garden/yard work to do.
~for our dogs, who alerted us of a group of people on the highway (at 2:30am), who had some sort of driving mishap.
~for Timmy, the barn cat who showed up on our porch a year or so ago. And who always makes me smile. He plops wherever he wants, as if he has had the most grusome work day and is needing a nap.
~for the water in our well. I've drained the rain barrel, and have been watering the garden, due to the lack of rain here. Thankful for that rain barrel too.
~for my hubby being home today, and giving me a hand with garden work/yard work today, and for getting my breakfast.
