Getting Grateful this Morning



every monday, i like to link up with ember grey for her grateful heart monday link-up.  we post about things that we're grateful for that day, and it's an awesome way to start off your week.

here's what i'm grateful for today:
a great trip to nashville this past weekend
feeling inspired
3 weeks til my birthday!
that my dad has been feeling good lately (2nd round of chemo is this thursday...prayers appreciated!)
sunshine
a chill evening last night
the freedom that living in this country affords us
summer walks
italian ice
and ice cream...because i got to experience the magic of jeni's last week

so stop by the grateful heart link-up …i encourage you to go check it out, read some of the other posts, and consider participating!  if posting on a monday doesn't suit your blogging schedule, good news!  the link-up is open all week long!

what are you grateful for today?

  1. I just got grateful on my blog today too, completely coincidentally! I think thinking about the things that make life wonderful and make us happy helps us see things in a more positive light. It's a practice I love :)

  2. Jeni's ice cream....! envious! I've heard of it, but haven't had the chance to try it yet. :9 I'm grateful for new potential career opportunities and a husband who is patient enough to take countless photos for my blog use.. :D
