Week 4 of the Wednesday Lists, Part 2
Prompt: List what you are grateful for.

Obviously, this is a favorite topic of mine.  I believe that the secret to a happy life is to be consistently and purposefully grateful.  I write often about gratitude here on this blog and Team Lawson keeps a daily list over on our family blog.  This, then, is not intended to be a comprehensive list, but rather, an illustrated one.  Here are just a few of the many, many things for which I give thanks each and every day. 

Jeffrey and Sloane

my parents 

carnivals, entertainment, and family fun


God's glorious creation 


old signs and architecture - and dessert 


 my niece, Persephone

old things



 What are you thankful for every single day? 

You can order the card above here.

Thanks for coming by today.
I am thankful for birthdays and an opportunity to celebrate them. Thankful for friends, even online friends. Oh and books, my grandson, family, flowers, sunshine - all in no particular order.

Hi, Relyn! Moments of gratitude celebration... love those! Every day I'm thankful for the love of family & friends. LOVE is the big one my my daily list. :o) Just now surfacing after 2 weeks+ I've been down with flu & migraines--slowly mending. Fist chance I've had to post and visit friends.

Kyra said...

Thank you is a favourite topic of mine too, but as much as I love saying it, it feels so awkward when I'm at the receiving end of them.

Thank you, Relyn for enriching my life with your posts, sharing the joy that u experience, your family, your reads, it enriches me :)
