And now, despite the spring warmth, I am still. Just. So. Tired.
That soul deep fatigue lets me know that there is another garden which needs tending in my life right now - my garden of gratitude. Like my soil based garden, it needs regular attention to flourish. And also like my soil based garden, it gives back much more than I put into it. When it thrives, I thrive.
Today, I want to share this tending with you. Today, I am grateful...
I am grateful for spring gardens and rainy days. For the ants, gnats, bees, and other bugs that used to be absent from my yard.
I am grateful for naps and the opportunity to have them. For toddler snuggles and kisses. Even the snot drippy ones ;)
I am grateful for dandelion tea and a quiet moment to sip it while reflecting on the many blessings in my life.
I am grateful for Derek's love, for all of his "try hard" efforts, and for his partnership in this amazing life I am getting to lead.
I am grateful for tender seedlings and all the hope they hold.
I am grateful.
What are you grateful for today?
