~ Gratitude Sunday ~


{Sunday's heartfelt tradition. A time to slow down, to reflect, to be grateful. A list of gratitudes.} 
If you would like to join us, see below. 
Our gratefulness feeds one another.
Today is the same calender day that I was born 33 yrs ago.
I am grateful to have cuddled with my two babies this morning
to feel and smell their soft baby skin and hear their baby breathing sounds.
To eat some yummy birthday pie for breakfast!!
...that I found the recipe for this lovely raw food, vegan sugar free banana cream pie. 
(recipe will be the next post)
SO Grateful for friends traveling on crazy snowdrifted icy SK roads to come here on my 
birthday weekend!  and the ones who set the suprise up.
My mother used to suprise me EVERY birthday. somehow. even though every birthday was the same!  
You'd think I'd expect it almost...  
to be reminded of my mother through the kindness of others on this first birthday without her.
I am grateful that perhaps maybe this snow stormy weather might be breaking up now.  I see ice-kuddles (that's what Attie calls them!)  melting - the sun is really out.
For a rejuvenated sense of wanting to be good to my body through movement and clean food.
ever so grateful for seeds growing in my house!!  
I am challenging myself with sk native seeds which are tricky little things with lots of rules... 
unless of course they are left under the snow in the fall to germinate! 
 Nature's laws are very straight foreword and funny to try copy indoors...
I am grateful for hope. for support groups that exist through frustrating times.
I am grateful for the crisp full breaths that come on nice winter days. 
making me want to just DRINK full cups of winter air.       
feeling it healing my lungs and freshening my energy on different levels.
for the soap batches that made themselves appear, 
readying for the spring handmade show here in town. 
I am grateful for all the interest that showed up when a friend and I decided to start a local food 
permaculture movement here in town.  
I am ever so grateful for the permaculture movement expanding everywhere you look!
growing communities worldwide full of ALL good ideas!
 earth care, people care, fair share. 
I am grateful for my family circle which I feel has grown stronger with the loss of mother.
Goes without saying that I miss her every day, yet knowing I can phone a sister and get the same energy that she had to fill my cup, brings me relief.
Grateful for elderly and not so elderly neighbors who show their kindness
 to the "newish" family on the block, so generously.  
I feel like family here even though I have known them for such a short while.
I feel like I have a new grandfather, cousins and aunties :0)
Again. I am ever so grateful for my sweet little girls. 
whom I love more than anything on this universe. 
I am grateful for my shower, which is where I am headed!
