Hi Friends what’s in your heart today?
Be sure to read to the bottom where you can snag another Freebie
As the days of November quickly go by, I can’t help but think that I have so very many things to be grateful for and so I just wanted to share a few things that are in my heart and on my mind today.
Recently I created an art journal page for the Gratitude Junk Journal and the prompt that was provided – prompted me to create a page being thankful for coffee. Seems so trivial I know. But when I sat and thought about the simplicity of a cup of coffee I realized that this simple drink has so much more meaning to me that what it is on the surface. (below a photo of this layout)
I mean – Don’t get me wrong I love my coffee – steaming hot & fresh out of the pot first thing in the morning – waking me up – providing me with the promise of a new day – a fresh start – a do over of sorts.
But but then I realized all the times I turn to coffee…
A call to a friend – do you want to meet for coffee and chat?
A text to my husband – it’s been a long day want to go for coffee after work?
A visit to my mom at the nursing home – mom look I brought you coffee with lots of sugar just how you love it.
A call from my son – you need help with something? – Let’s go grab a coffee and talk about it
As I sat and pondered all these things more continued to pop in my head –
all the times I visited someone in the hospital and for a bit of respite went down for a cup of coffee
My son as a teenager going through a rough patch – Dan and I going for coffee to talk about how we will get through these days / months / years ahead
At an event or a retreat – hey you love coffee too – OMG me too – instant friends headed off to get coffee each day
The list goes on and on but you get the point. Sometimes these simplest things in our lives are really the deep meaningful ones that happen while we are just living. This month I’m choosing to be more mindful and pay attention to the little things that matter in my life. To look at all those “little things” I’m blessed with on a daily basis.
Which brings me to the Freebie I have for all of you today
I want to remind each an everyone of you that I am so grateful for you! I appreciate you stopping by – leaving me comments and sharing my posts. So today I have another gratitude gift for you. I have selected some of my favorite quotes and put them together here in a download that you can print off and use in your art or journals.
