Back on November 30, 2013, I invited everyone to participate in a Living Thankfulness Link-Up. I had just come off a great experience with 30 Days of Thanks on Facebook, and I wanted to keep the spirit of thankfulness rolling through the rest of the year. I also wanted some action to come out of all of this thankfulness. It is one thing to say you are thankful and another to truly BE thankful. So my thankfulness challenge was born. Wouldn’t you know it, I have done TERRIBLY with this. Continue reading
I don’t know how many people are planning to participate in my Living Thankfulness Link-Up, but I thought I’d do a check-in to see how things are going. I’ve been keeping a thankfulness journal this month, but today I am going to share my entry with you all.

Today is the last day of the 30 Days of Thanks.

This weekend, some of the crops in our super-sized garden came ready to harvest so I had some canning to do. For those of you following along with my pregnancy saga, I am still pregnant. Being a week overdue is rough, but putting food up in summer while a week overdue is even worse. Luckily for me, I’ve got AMAZING friends who came to the aid of my husband and I. Continue reading
Today turned out to feel like the most trying day in a very long time. It was pretty normal, by most standards, but I just felt wiped by the time we hit nap time. I had appointments to make, chicken to skin, family to visit, medication to pick-up, groceries to buy, donations to drop off, and mail to retrieve. I did not realize how wiped I was until my absolutely over-the-top-full-of-energy munchkin was in his bed and I was finally eating an egg salad sandwich. Which, by the way, seemed quite literally like the most delicious food I’ve eaten, as of late. It was then, mid-sandwhich, that I heard the softest raindrops hitting the leaves of this lovely hazelnut tree just outside my dining room window. Continue reading
