Much to be thankful for on this Gratitude Sunday.  We spent the weekend in Keystone with some friends of ours.  We met through our sons, who are best friends at their preschool.  It is always such a blessing when you are able to become friends with the parents of your children’s friends.  We had spent some time with them before the weekend, but we didn’t know them that well, which is why it was so gracious of them to invite us to come and stay.  After the weekend, it’s clear that we’ve begun a long-term friendship.  It’s always exciting to make new friends.  In addition, we all had such a blast skiing, swimming, and playing games in the evening (and drinking a few glasses of wine).  What a fantastic way to end the winter!

Gratitude List for the week ending March 28th

  1. Making homemade Key Lime Pie (very seldom do I bake) and listening to everyone rave about how delicious it was.
  2. Phil’s parents arrived home safely after a wonderful visit.
  3. I got a lot of exercise this week, which feels great after several weeks of slacking.
  4. Friends invited us to stay with them at their place in Keystone.  We all had so much fun.  A perfect weekend.
  5. Stuck in an interminable traffic jam on the way up the mountains, a teenage girl in the car next to us started blowing bubbles out her window, delighting the kids who, up to that point, had been fussy and cranky.
  6. Skiing, skiing, skiing, skiing, skiing
  7. EM CAN SKI THE BLUE RUNS NOW!!!  We had so much fun skiing with her, and even more rewarding was listening to her beg to ski more after we got down the mountain.
  8. Ditto for Jay, begging to keep skiing at the end of the day.
  9. The hot tub and sauna!
  10. Waking up to this view on Sunday morning:

What are you grateful for this week?
