Sweet Cake, Daisies, Flowers

ttot, ten things of thankful, gratitude blog
I am thankful for the Daisy award nomination I received from work by two family members of patients I took care of. It still amazes me that some people can take time to fill out the form on a very stressful time their loved ones are in critical care. 
I am thankful for the relaxing bath that I can take every once in a great while. Talk about a mini-vacation spa for twenty minutes or so.
I am thankful for relaxing walks. The earth is beautiful.
I am thankful for the flowers I strategically place in my messy kitchen. At least I have something pretty to look at. :)
I am thankful for paper decor. I can quickly patch up some imperfections on the walls before a visitor comes. 




I am thankful for my son who willingly did the steam cleaning for the whole house. I paid him with a whole year's supply of contact lenses. We are both happy in the end. Velvet seems to be satisfied too as she supervises his work.

I am happy for my backyard as an emergency jogging place when I don't have time to go to the park. A breath of outside air can fool my body that I am out exercising. So refreshing.

I am thankful for neighbor's animals. I don't have to take Velvet to the zoo to watch other animals.

I am thankful for Paul with his good taste in food. This night was Korean barbecue night.

I am thankful for my son for sharing my birthday cupcake with me. It is our favorite Tres Leches. Last year, both of my children were on a run on my birthday. So this year is special. I know where they are.


What are you thankful for this week?

A wonderful glimpse into a week of thankfulness. Love that your son cleaned the carpets for you. Colorado is a beautiful place. I lived in Boulder, then Denver for five years. Spectacular.

I have no trouble understanding why the families fill out the forms. In the midst of such sadness and worry, they notice the nice things people do. They want to focus on something good and thank the people who show them kindness. Marvelous that you can show that kindness to these families.
What a great barter you and your son came up with! Cleaning for contacts. Brilliant!
I am so happy to get to be outside getting warmer fresh air lately.
