GRATITUDE // As of late I've been trying to end more of my days with an entry into my journal that highlights the things I'm thankful for. Whether the entry is short or long, it's a good way to debrief, get things out of my head before trying to fall asleep, and of course, thank God for His blessings...whatever form they come in. Tonight I'm especially thankful for the following:
-Early morning visitors...extended family @warken.ed sent a text around 8am letting us know they were driving from SoCal back to BC and were on their way through the Bay Area. They joined our bleary-eyed and messy-haired crew for breakfast and a lovely catch-up. Dawn + Ed, you were truly a wonderfully unexpected blessing and perfect start to our week!
-A husband who takes Lauren camping overnight just because, and friends to join them for a mini adventure.
-A dear friend to spend a low-key afternoon and dinner with...the people you don't have to be 'on' for are the best kind of people!
-Special, uninterrupted time with Natalie...she wasn't quite a fan of being left out of the big sister fun, but I know she likes the attention of one-on-one time. And since I'm a quality time person, I love personal time with each of my girls on their own.
