today I am grateful

I try to be grateful every day, but today is one of those days when I am filled with gratitude. A few of the reasons:
  • It's a beautiful day here, sunny and warm, so I went for a bike ride with Eva this morning.
  • I overslept this morning, but still got in a morning workout
  • my cute bike and child trailer
  • the blue sky with the tiniest wisps of clouds
  • my family is healthy
  • Because no one is sick, I have the freedom to accomplish some of my own tasks
  • I finally vacuumed out my van (now I have a clean car AND I can cross off an item that's been on my to-do list for weeks!)
  • no piano lessons today
  • no Scouts tonight!
  • no outside obligations for the day
  • Eva's taking a nap and I'm headed down to my studio to do some cleaning/organizing
  • I have some good mail to send
I guess it doesn't take all that much to make me feel happy!

Sounds lika a great day to me!! Glad you and your bike are getting a work out. I am sure that Eva is enjoying it too.
Congratulations on your weight loss and determination toward your goals!
Wish we were enjoying warm and blue skies....

Well no wonder you're feeling grateful, what a wonderful day. It's window-open weather and no one is sick, plus no Scouts tonight (2 weeks in a row) you must be floating on a cloud. Hooray!

My list today includes:
Timp- dang, I love that mountain!
Riding the exercise bike, uninterrupted!
Getting a shower and
easy dinner planned!
Amazing what a little sun can do for us!

I so relate to your list. What does it say that I'm always so glad to have things like scouts cancelled? Rhetorical question, I know the answer. We may be registered in too many things.

Diana said...

You do have a lot to be gratful for, that is a great list. You sound so happy.

bike ride.... oh so great

melanie said...

What a great day! I love this list you made! A bike ride in Feb is a treat. Our weather is supposed to turn bad again and I'm not happy about it.

I am jealous on a few levels, my van is screaming for a vacuum and my kids are clingy so none of my own tasks have gotten done. Maybe tomorrow!

That is a wonderful list of things to be grateful for. I sort of had a heavy heart today so your post this evening has encouraged me to write a list of things I'm grateful for to lift my spirits. i certainly love your #2.
