Each week I host a link up for you to share what you are thankful for.
It is so easy to get bogged down by daily life, by the things that call for our attention,
by the disappointments and let downs, by responsibilities and the day to day, 
everyday mundane.
There is so much to be thankful for.
Whether it's something small that has warmed your heart,
or something huge that has taken your breath away. 
Chances are there have been a few moments this week that have given you a little hope for good things.
I want to hear about it! Whether you link up a blog post or share in the comment section,
hearing about other people's triumphs - big or small - can shift our perspective.
And taking a little time to reflect on our week and look for the good can remind us
of all the goodness within reach. It does my heart good - I hope the same for you!

This week I am grateful for
good conversation
watching my children run and play and enjoy life
warm, soul-filling sunshine
the power of prayer
the excitement of possibility
ridiculous texts from my bloggy bffs
the first pedicure of summer
my sweet eddie turning 3 and moments to reflect on what a gift he is

How about you?
Grab a button, link up, and make a few new friends.
