Another week, another Gratitude Sunday.

Quotes on Gratitude:

“Gratitude is the most exquisite form of courtesy”Jacques Maritain

Today a thousand doors of enterprise are open to you, inviting you to useful work. To live at this time is an inestimable privilege, and a sacred obligation devolves upon you to make right use of your opportunities. Today is the day in which to attempt and achieve something worthwhile.”Grenville Kleiser

“We hope that, when the insects take over the world, they will remember with gratitude how we took them along on all our picnics.”Bill Vaughn (Because we had ants in our house this week)

Gratitude List for the week ending April 11th

  1. Getting one of my manuscripts submitted on time for a workshop.  I can’t say it’s finished (they never are), but it was a big accomplishment to get it sent off.
  2. The tulips are coming, the tulips are coming (on the Pearl Street Mall)!
  3. A haircut and a trip to the bookstore on the same day
  4. Finally finishing Wolf Hall, and in time for the book club meeting
  5. An evening at the library, all to myself, to write.
  6. Three hours in a cafe, all to myself, to write. (Great writing week for me!)
  7. Grilled pork chops.
  8. The first day the kids played outside after school.  They rolled around in the mud from the sandbox, got completely soaked and dirty, and had the time of their lives!
  9. Phil was home all week
  10. Kids making fruit salad together

What are you grateful for this week?

  1. Great gratitude list! Here we don’t have tulips, but the crocuses have been up for a few weeks and I can see I’m about a week away from Daffodills! 🙂

    Love the image of your kids making fruit salad together. 🙂

    • Thanks so much for your comment (got trapped in my spam folder initially).

      I love daffodils also, and LILACS! One of my favorite weeks of the year is when my lilac bushes are in bloom and I put cuttings in every room of the house. I am already in anticipation!
