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.
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 am grateful for the time we spend together as a family .
One of our favorite ways to spend time together is taking road trips.The most recent road trip we took we stopped off at a Lavender farm.
The couple that own the farm sell all kinds of homemade products. The owner was so sweet when she explained all the work involved with rebuilding the old farm house and believe me I know what she is talking about.
My husband and I rebuilt our own little red house all while homeschooling our two children. The rebuilding of our place was a learning experience for our children.They were included in a lot of that.
I always enjoy hearing about others out there fixing up a home for themselves. The Lavender farm was a a perfect stop because we got to see what a dream looks like once completed.
I told the owner that her home reminded me of a Scandinavian home. Her husband was out in the field tending to the lavender, just like those floral paintings I see in the art museum.
The neighbor across the farm was visiting that day and when they both saw my camera they asked if I was a photographer and I answered “Just as a hobby, I am up for the Fall leaves and to check on our place in the area” that is when the friendly neighbor told me to stop off at the river on the way out because the colors and leaves are everywhere right now and she wasn’t kidding.
We plan on going back to that Lavender farm, this time I want to leave a thank you gift, maybe cookies, maybe something I make by hand, or even a card telling them they have a beautiful farm and thank you just for that. It’s always nice to repay someone’s kindness back with something kind yourself. It’s also nice to do things as a family to continue keeping that bond strong and close to our hearts.
I tag a couple fellow travelers. Love seeing the places they visit and the stories those places have to tell. Their photos are the icing on the cake, it’s all good.
