fostering a grateful spirit

"If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams, and you will always look lovely." -Roald Dahl

birthday and books {day 112}

1 Comment


first and most importantly, today is my mom’s 50th birthday! there are millions of reasons to be thankful for my mom, but among them are these: she gives 100% to every person in her life and then she gives some more, she hangs out with me when I feel like crap and even does amazingly kind things like clean our fridge when I just had surgery and can’t, and she loves people so much. she is amazing, and I’m so thankful to have her.


I’m thankful for this book which reminds me that some days it doesn’t always make sense and some days even the sweet feels a little bit difficult. also grateful for my sweet husband who understands when I cry after good biopsy results because I’m relieved and because sometimes the good and bad are so intermingled that it’s hard to not feel both emotions deeply and together.


and I’m thankful for this stuff, which is pretty dang good.
