Attitude of Gratitude Award
Dawn at Cottage State of Mind has given me an Attitude of Gratitude award! In her own words, it's an award celebrating the ability to "see the blessings where they're not obvious, and making lemonade instead of complaining about sour lemons"! I am supposed to share what I am grateful for, and then pass the award on. Here are just a few things I am grateful for:
My sweet, wonderful daughter Liz. She's as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside! This is a picture of her packing to go back to college. These are just some of her many purses!
My sweet husband, who not only lets me take a picture of him with a butterfly on his head, but also doesn't mind if I put it on my blog!
Our cozy little home, that sheltered us from the tornado that passed within 10 miles of our home last night!
And the little patch of land that I am able to grow beautiful flowers like this on. When I was too afraid to tend this little back garden, because of my mean neighbors, I felt like I had been robbed of something. Since I've taken control of it again, I feel like a piece of a puzzle has been slid back into place, and this has been one of the best summers ever! Minus the poison ivy that I keep finding back there!
I am grateful for so many other things too, like every single friend and family member, and all of the wonderful people that I have met in the blogging world! I am truly blessed! Now I would like to pass this award on to some people who know the meaning of the word "gratitude"!
