Gratitude Rocks – My #ThankfulThursday Reminder

Ever got in a mood where you just didn’t feel like being happy? Or thankful? Or positive?

Somehow I recently got into a funk and didn’t realize it until it was too late.

I was cranky. I was irritable. I was just plain BLAH!

I still went about my day-to-day life and put on a happy face. But it was only on the surface. I distanced myself from those that could tell the difference.

10 Ways To Show Gratitude And Appreciation

Have you thanked someone today?

I love the quote below and even though my children give me serious side-eye when I paraphrase it – they get it. I truly believe that we can always find something to be thankful for in our day-to-day walk.

My youngest son has been counting down to this day since Christmas morning. He is a huge fan of birthday celebrations and has been reminding us on a very regular basis that he is almost six years old.

Thank You Just Because

My five-year-old recently came up to me and said “Thank You Mommy!”. Thinking I had spaced out on a conversation I asked what I did. His response almost (okay, it did!) brought tears to my eyes – “Nothing really, I just wanted to thank you for being my mommy!”.

Thankful Thursday: Gratitude Reflections

What a week it has been! The biggest excitement was the almost two inches of snow we received here in Columbia, South Carolina!

At the top of my gratitude list for the week is that my family is safe, warm and well-prepared for this weather.  The madness in Atlanta, Georgia breaks my heart! Friends and family in Atlanta share post after post after post reporting that they and/or loved ones were safe.
