So without further ado, here are some of the things I am grateful for this week:
-- I'm noticing signs of SPRING!!
-- I saw a bright male bluebird perching on top of our bluebird house twice this week! I hope they will nest there again this year.
-- The cardinals have been visiting the feeder (they've been here all winter, just not at the feeder).
-- I heard a pileated woodpecker calling from our back woods.
-- The rains this week have washed away all the snow. My son has been having a grand time sloshing around in the mud and puddles in the new rubber boots that I got him (bright green with lots of bugs and caterpillars on them-- he LOVES them!)
-- On the drive to school, my mildly autistic son loves to sing B-I-N-G-O over and over (and over) which brings joy to my heart, but annoys his sister to no end!
-- I tried several new healthy dinner and vegetable recipes at home this week-- some of which were a hit and some were not. My kids are picky eaters, but I'm expanding our limited menu little by little.
-- My son wore his spiderman underwear after school yesterday and went a little pee-pee in the potty!!
-- I've been working on our taxes and totally reorganizing and weeding out my files. Thanks to the digital age and shredder machine, I can discard a fair amount of paper taking that is taking up precious space.
-- I made some valuable connections with people in my therapy group this week and had a very cathartic meeting with my individual therapist. I'm hoping some of the "clouds" will clear now. (My machine continued to gather dust this week, but I will be back when I'm ready.)
-- And of course I am always grateful for my husband and my children, and I never want to take them for granted. And we are all generally in good health.
What kinds of things are you grateful for?
