Gratitude Week...

...counting blessings

Today starts a very special week with Michelle ~ 
 :: slowing down on purpose :: using your senses :: counting blessing big and small 

 As I come to terms and navigate through the holidays parentless for the first time, this week of gratitude could not have come at a better time. 
My awareness of tree trimmings and wrapping paper, and the goodness of holiday mayhem, of life insurance claims, probate and lawyers fees 
I was able to steal some quiet moments, breath and take note of...

...the smell of much needed rain on the road~as brief as it was
...the sound of my heart beating as I purposefully park a 10 minute walk from work
...the taste of my morning coffee
...watching the morning sky go from yellows and pinks to grey and black
...the feel of shaping matzoh balls for soup
...warm chicken soup

What are you grateful for today? Please share.

Happy (warm soup in your belly) snapping
