Gr a t i t u d e * S u n d a y
Sunday’s heartfelt tradition. A time to slow down, to reflect, to be grateful.
A list of gratitude.
- I felt a little bit better this week and had enough energy not to bail out on a trip to Milwaukee’s Whole Foods where I found fresh turmeric root for $2.99 a pound-all the turmeric in the picture only cost .59 cents! I made a tea last night with turmeric and ginger. So good.
- I appreciate my neighbor who left a little package of homemade chocolate zucchini bread at my doorstep along with a note that the bread was mostly unsweetened. It was delicious and I didn’t miss the sugar at all.
- Lotus Wei flower essences (go to their site and take the flower quiz) handled the most insignificant customer service issue by gifting me a free bottle of Infinite Love…which, I am giving to my mother. I am so impressed and believe me, I feel guilty because they didn’t do anything wrong at all, but I accepted the bottle with gratitude because my mom is in need of some magic right now. I first learned of Lotus Wei through Boho Girl, but this post by Madelyn Mulvaney really hit the ball out of the park. Aren’t her photos gorgeous?
- I was knocked out by Pixie Campbell’s gift of her entire summer Soul Lodge session…all of the lessons are downloadable and free. I cannot tell you how blessed I feel to be working through the lessons, journeying with the drumming and watching the videos. What a treat for all of us who admire her work!
- It seems that the holidays are coming early this year with so many generous give-aways and discounts:
- I love Pinterest. So many images to inspire . . . I have so much fun pinning…feel free to follow me over there.
- I appreciated my
glass saladgemstone elixir bowl during the blue moon. It was a wedding gift to my grandparents in the 40′s. I used it to make blue moon water on the tiny patio of our apartment building. We share this patio with our neighbors and no one disturbed it during the two nights of blue moonbeam charging.
- I appreciated the care the chef at Cafe Hollander in Milwaukee took when arranging the fruit on my waffle yesterday-apples, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries covered the entire thing—it looked like a mandala.
- I appreciated my in-laws and how fun they were to have along on our day trip yesterday. Lot’s of laughs and my mother in-law was so enthusiastic about all the places Mark and I were showing her. I was so happy that my father in-law felt well enough to go and he even got a little exercise which I think helps his aching knees.
- And last, but not least…nettles!
