For on the smiles,

the thanks we give,

our little gestures of appreciation,

Our neighbors build

their philosophy of life.’

What a roller coaster! You had me all warm and sunny with the summer time photos and then BAM! you hit me with fuzzy socks.

Fall/winter really hit us this week, so I'm going to be grateful for the roof over my head.

love the fuzzy socks! you are so cute! If I said the first thing that came to my mind it would be my husband's encouragement (he is sitting across from me as i type so i looked up, saw him, and ergo, he was my first thought).

look at you ready to go with the iheartfaces post! I forgot about this week! thanks for the reminder...

I'm pinching myself too. Thanks for the reminder sometimes it's so easy to loose sight of our blessings. Have a wonderful week.

Sonya said...

I love fuzzy socks too! I sometimes take things for granted when it comes to my loved ones and after 2 weeks ago I no longer will do that.

There is much to be thankful for and we need to let those who we care about know that.

What a wonderful family. Gratitude. yes we should live with gratitude for all we have. I thank God every day for the life he has give me. I can't imagine how it is for people in other countries or even other situations in our own country. I am just so grateful for all I have been given. I'm grateful that I've found your blog!

Liberty said...

All those smiling faces!! How can I not have a great morning after seeing all of those?!

I think of my Nanny and my daughter when I think of fuzzy socks. Growing up, my Nanny always had the coolest socks and sock slippers to keep her feet warm. My daughter LOVES fuzzy socks and wears them constantly in the winter. She makes me smile.

Popping over from SITS and so glad I found you!

xxoo,
Liberty

Christina said...

I saw the quote you left on SITS and had to come by and see what type of person was so inspirational early in the morning.

I'm glad I did. :-)

First thing that comes to mind when I think happiness and thankfulness: family and friends. Cheesy but true.

Hope you have an absolutely wonderful Monday!
