I began this series of posts after seeing the idea of practicing daily gratefulness. I thought it was so good I had to blog about it! I have been unable to blog lately for a variety of reasons but this was very important to me and I intend to see the whole year through with a thankful thought for each and every day. Happiness is a fleeting emotion but gratitude can be cultivated. What are you thankful for today?
May 1- A new month and its the last frost day so I can safely plant out my garden! Yes!
May 2- One of my students had a birthday today so that was fun. And I got to see a few old friends!

May 10- Church!
May 11- Wonderful conversations with friends and ….church! (My church is awesome)
May 12- Treated myself to an early mother’s day gift and bought a couple of flowers to plant in my hanging baskets On the porch. I love my front porch during the warm months!
May 13- I’m not gonna lie…..when your kids pretty much expect you to wait on them and your husband leaves for not 1 but 2 calls from work it kinda makes for a poopy mother’s day. On a positive note, I did buy myself treats and got to chat with my mom for a bit. After I was done feeling sorry for a fairly unimpressive mother’s day I was pretty thankful that I have these brats around. *sigh*
May 14- I had a bad attitude today. (I’m struggling with PCOS and it can be unkind) but my husband took the day off so it was nice having him around. Even if he did ignore me (he was installing flooring) I got a fab new floor out of the deal. And he fixed my sprinkler and went grocery shopping with me. That hasn’t happened in a looooong time and it was pretty nice- and much faster than me and the monsters!
May 16- I’m thankful for changes. I feel like we are on the brink of a breakthrough.
May 17- A get away! Its finally happening!
May 18- The Hennekes hit the big city. We aren’t on the farm anymore! We enjoyed Pike Place and a fun Ferris wheel ride over the water.
May 19- More together time! It was lovely in lush green Washington state.
May 20-We enjoyed a few stops on the way home today. I didn’t want to come back! (its not often I have my hubby to myself)

Overall this month has thrown us a few curve balls…. (hellllo job switch!) and it is going to be an adjustment but I’m keeping things looking up because that is how we can not only be blessed but be a blessing.
Wishing the best to you and yours,
