Today started off very slowly.  I was tired and sore from taking a pilates class yesterday and didn't shower until about 3 pm. So I was feeling like a big slug.  Once I showered I was able to do some dishes and feel like I was functioning.
 
 Right now I am thankful for the little things happening in my home which are my son playing with his best friend and now having some hot cocoa like a regular kid.  I'm snuggling up with my dog to read a new book (not a self help book) with snow falling outside my window covering the trees.  Although I'm totally not ready for the snow it is comforting to know that there is happiness in my home and I'm just taking it in.  It almost brings me to tears but I am greatful.
 
I hope you too can find something to be greatful for today or to find some joy in your day.  I think we expect such big things but its the small things that we need stop and take in.

You are right cookie,

We tend to overlook the simple things in life and take things for granted. I try to find something everyday in my life to be thankful for. It isn't snowing here but it did some yesterday and there was a rainbow. It was so cool. It was sunny for a little bit today and I took my dog for a short walk. The sun wasn't out very much though. I hope we get some sunshine before the snow starts. I am not looking forward to winter, but I will make the best of it.

Thanks for such a positive post. We need that...

Hugs, Karen

Hi Karen,
I live in New England and we don't usually get snow this early but I'm trying to embrace it and hope that it melts soon. My son on the other hand loves the snow and just came in again from a little bit of shoveling with his buddy. Love to see him so happy.

take care,

Thanks cookie.

I am not ready for snow either. But I know it is coming soon. I live in MI and we have long winters too. Stay warm...

Hugs, Karen

You are right cookie, we do tend to miss the little things. All of my focus is on this feeling I have, so everything else is just passing me by. Perhaps if I for something small I can be happier. The picture you painted of your happy moment was wonderful. I could feel a peacefulness. Thanks for putting positive into my day.

so glad you and yr son had such a nice day. I write 5 things I am grateful for every day and it is usually the small stuff that touches our heart...your son w/ a cocoa moustache or my daughter describing her halloween costume to me before she raced out the door like she was little , not 15!!

Wish I could be watching snow fall (still a Yankee at heart)

Everyone have a nice night and good sleep
