Gratitude Sunday

It's not so early but the sun isn't yet up. P and Aedan are asleep together on the couch, and I'm finally taking the time to join Taryn at Wooly Moss Roots in her wonderful weekly tradition...

G r a t i t u d e  *  S u n d a y

{Sunday's heartfelt tradition. A time to slow down, to reflect, to be grateful. A list of gratitudes.} 

This week, I've felt grateful for...

-peaceful walks in the woods with the dogs and Aedan wrapped snug against my chest

-P being able to spend some days at home

-our growing woodpile and crackling fires in the woodstove

-having tea with friends who understand that all I want to do is look at my baby...and who suggest we lay him in the middle of the kitchen table so we can all look at him

-my beautiful baby boy!

-Patsy (the cat) finally being on the mend. Since we've come home from Whitehorse, we've been dealing with cauliflowered mammary tumours and thinking we had to put her down, to surgery, to infection...only a few more days of the antibiotics and she should be able to take the cone off. She's almost back to her old self.

-discovering new music

-Skype, and the internet, for allowing me to stay in touch with my family on the other side of the country

-realizing that I can't do it all at once, and that change is often a gradual thing

-feeling inspired to write!

-don't tell anyone else but...I'm grateful for the snow! I love each snowfall, it is so pretty out there.


  1. Hi Tara!
    So nice to hear from you! What a beautiful gratitude list, thanks for sharing the link.

    How old is your baby boy? I know how you feel, just wanting to stare at your baby! :)
    Sounds like you live in a beautiful place.

    Thank you for reading my blog and saying hello!

    Love, Taryn

  2. Yay, I love your blog! It's awesome to hear about life up North. I've always wanted to go exploring up there...I love the snow, too. :)

  3. What a wonderful gratitude list. We too, are thankful for Skype. We're also thankful that our daughter who lives in the north, is trying so hard to help her parents (and her beautiful baby boy's grandparents) feel a part of their lives, when they live thousands of miles apart. We are very grateful to you for that and we love you both very much.


I love hearing from you! Thanks for taking the time to read and comment.
