thankful tuesday, 2/8

posting today's thankful tuesday blog from the acela on my way to nyc.  of course always sad to be away from home - but the bliss of uninterrupted quiet time on the train can be quite a delight.

gifts this week
  • this quiet time on the train
  • walking home late at night in the snow - love the sound of just my boots crunching down the road in the silence of night
  • letter from my dad
  • visiting with a neighbor and losing track of time
  • meeting a sweet new baby
  • seeing friends who i haven't seen in some time
  • sturdy roof on our old house - and wes' diligence in removing snow
  • principal over preference - this message is all around me this week
  • boston's south end and some ninja parking success 
  • ella's conquering of the paralyzing shy jitters & tears so she could enjoy her bff's b-day fun 
  • teaching her that a little prayer (& bouncing on a trampoline) always help
  • feeling the crabbies coming on before it takes over and taking a prayer time out
  • thinking about summer plans

  1. LOVE your list, Erin!
    How are you enjoying Ann's book? I'm soaking it in.
    Also, talk more about principal over preference. I think I know what you mean, but would love to hear your thoughts!
