Grow the Gratitude Tag, Day 2

Rachel over at Rachel and fierce started up a Grow the Gratitude tag. Thank you Rachel for including me in such a great idea. We do need some positive out there in the world right now. Check out Rachel’s site and her post on her family. You have a beautiful family and I love how close you all are. Your kids will have many things to be grateful for when they are adults

Okay, this is how it works. Every day for seven days, you post one thing you are grateful for or how gratitude was shown on your day.

To grow the gratitude, each day tag a couple people to help it grow. We spend a lot of time always hearing the negativity on the news, social media, or whatever, so lets make it a little bit more thankful.

Rules-

Have fun

show gratitude

Be sincere

Post everyday for seven days something that you were thankful for that day. It doesn’t have to be elaborate. It can be simple, or it could be how you showed gratitude to someone or vice versa.

Tag s few fellow bloggers to grow gratitude

Give a shout out to Rachel and fierce, who created the tag and the person who tagged you to join.

I’m so grateful to have a garden.

All gardens are gifts. They are the perfect places to sit in peace and think. We all need  quiet moments to rest and relax during the day. In my garden I have planted many things in memory of pass loved ones. It is also the place I can pray for the ones I care for.

The garden has many visitors like wild doves, bees, butterflies, even a stray cat now and then will show up to drink water or eat from a little dish I leave out. I also feed the birds.

When a flower blooms or plant grows I know these are all gifts from God. I am very grateful to have my garden.It is also a place I work on redoing furniture or arts and craft projects. I have even taught art classes in my garden.

Baby spider plants are popping up everywhere right now. This one here looks like it is floating in the air.

With the plants that grow and the items I make I will pass that on to others by gifting them to them. This way everyone can start their own gardens. It is a beautiful and peaceful place to be.

I tag a couple bloggers that also have beautiful gardens and farms. I always enjoy reading up on what their gardens have given them.

  2. That’s a beautiful concept!
    Lovely flowers from your garden! At my parent’s house we also used to feed birds and squirrels, used to share flowers seeds and home grown veggies and fruits with neighbours.
