Thankfully

When I first started this blog I used to post a happy list each week..
I really enjoyed putting together those lists and somewhere along the line keeping up with those lists became kinda difficult. I guess life got in the way, eh?
These days I'm working finding that balance, and making an effort to blog about what I really want to blog about.. which apparently is a happy list.
And not just a happy list, it's a happy and thankful list.
Because I've been thinking, life isn't just about being happy, it's about being thankful and recognizing the small things in life that make you happy.

So this week, I bring you...
A Happy And Very Thankful List
because really, I have a lot to be thankful for. ;)

1. Making the time to reflect and be thankful. Sometimes I get so lost in the busyness of life that I forget to just sit and be present.
2. Watching this kid (aka Nadav's nephew) fall asleep in my arms.
3. A hug and a thank you from the parents of one of the kids' I work with. It means a lot to know that they appreciate the work I do.
4. Seeing this view each day... I'm so so grateful
5. That moment when you get in the car, turn on the radio, and your favorite song comes on.
6.The warmer weather and the summer months that are fast approaching.
7. Romantical evening bike rides with my man. 
8. A hot chocolate kinda brunch instead of a mimosa kinda brunch. =P
9. Surviving my shopping freeze, and the sense of accomplishment that develops from saving money and learning to budget.
10. This blog. The friends I have made, the opportunities that have arisen, and the lessons it has taught me. Thanks little ol' blog.. and thanks to all of you who read and comment. Your time and words mean more to me than you know.

Hope you have a happy and thankful kind of day...
and make sure you enter the Lucid New York pretzel necklace giveaway =)

Thanks for sharing your thankful list! I used to keep a grateful journal and would write 3 things each day... That stopped after about a month but I still look back at it. What a great reminder to be in the present.
