fostering a grateful spirit

surrounded by generosity {day 257}

Today I was overwhelmed with gratitude for the generosity that I am surrounded by. friends, acquaintances and strangers offering to help with the fundraiser we are putting together. an employee offering a place to stay to another employee whose house flooded. I am just so thankful for the willingness of the people around me to serve others. I. am. blessed.

I also made a bowl that actually looks like a bowl in ceramics today. Thankful for small miracles. 🙂

silly & new {day 246}

Today the thing I’m most grateful for is this sweet text from Harlow and her mama. I love to see Harlow’s silly spirit shining through.

I’m also grateful for a hubby who sends me pictures of my veggies sprouting and who invites me to kill zombies with him and his friends. 🙂

*If you’re interested, this is the page where you can donate to help Harlow’s family with the already rising costs for Harlow’s medical treatments. If you aren’t able to donate, please consider sharing the link with your social circles. Thank you!*

tonight I am exhausted, but grateful. We did a fundraiser today at the theater I manage for Lurie Children’s Hospital (formerly Children’s Memorial Hospital). I am grateful for the kindness and generosity of strangers and loved ones, who donated, helped and encouraged. I am also grateful for the owner of our company, who is extremely generous, for my awesome friends who donated raffle prizes, and for my sweet hubs who stayed there with me all day to help set up, take donations and give information. I am so lucky to have a husband who is so supportive.
I am also so thankful for Harlow, who is a living, giggling, dancing little miracle (and who gives really good hugs). Loved visits from her and her family, mom and Riley and a few other friends. I am blessed.
