Cultivating a Life of Gratitude

I am committing myself, during 2010, to attempt to cultivate a greater awareness of how much I have to be thankful and grateful for by sharing my daily findings and musings with you. It is my hope that by blogging about gratitude, I will be more aware of what is going on around me in my life, my family, my friends' lives and our world.

Thank you!

In advance, I want to thank everyone who will be caring for E-man and Ross while I'm away the next few days.  We are blessed to have numerous people pitching in to watch the little dude and he loves them all! I'm also grateful that my husband supports me getting away and being with my sister - thanks babe!  I'm really looking forward to time away with my sister.  Since she has moved to CO we really haven't had a whole lot of just 'sister' time.  We have visited as much as the miles allow with the boys always involved (which is great) but there is something REALLY great about just girl time.  No one knows me quite the same way as my sister.  I'm looking forward to our car time, chatting about everything, touring a new place, meeting her work friends and spending time alone at Compassion on Wednesday afternoon while she finishes up work, reading books, eating out (I'm breaking my eating out fast for this trip obviously :)), and more chatting, laughing, watching movies, etc.  I'm also thankful for the anticipation of vacation.  There is just something so fun about anticipating going away somewhere with someone you love!  YAY!


  1. YAY! Thanks to everyone for taking good care of Ethan while Em is gone. I kept trying to convince her he could come on sister weekend, but he'll probably have more fun in MN than he would on our girly trip:).

    Counting the hours!

  2. I'll miss your posts, but enjoy time with Jill!
