Grateful Monday

Grace In Small Things is the brainchild of Schmutzie. While I am grateful for things everyday, I can't imagine talking about it everyday - so for others like me, she suggested - why not just post Small Things on Mondays? A good idea, I think! After all, we all need more to be grateful for on Mondays!



Monday Grace In Small Things:

1. I am grateful for the dog, who pillows his bulk on my feet and gives me comfy toes.
2. Being able to lay hands on nail clippers, scissors, and tweezers when I need them.
(I buy several and leave them strategically placed around the house.)
3. Vanilla Sugar Butter body butter. I smell like a giant sugar cookie and I'm all soft, too.
4. Dancing with my kids. We've started doing this at night after supper and while B can outlast me, no one can move it move it as long as Rosey.
5. I am grateful for my soft warm bed, where I'm heading right now.

Mondays I can do! Mondays sounds good! I have been reading so many Days of Grace posts but I can't even commit to taking my vitamins everyday let alone posting about being grateful. Thanks for sharing this.

Mondays! What a great idea. Much less overwhelming a task.

Have you tried Vanilla Bean Noel from Bath & Body Works? Divine. I'm actually looking for more on eBay right now since they're sold out of Christmas stuff. I think it's an obsession.

I hadn't gone to Schmutzies, because every day? That was just too challenging. One day sounds possible!

I am grateful for MY warm soft bed and wish that I was in it, seeing as it's 3:30 am right now...

I love that number 1 was about your sweet dog.

Where DO tweezers disappear to? Maybe they're with the socks somewhere!

Lovely things to be grateful for.

I know it's cliche, but it is nice to be thankful for the small things in life.

Your list speaks volumes. We too are of the butt shakers. Much fun and appreciation. (That's how we spent New Year's just the four of us and Airborne Toxic Event's Wishing Well.)
