I know you haven’t seen a Thankful Thursday around here in a while. My bad. I really feel this series of posts is one of my most important. Living in Thankfulness helps to keep me balanced. It helps to keep me from getting caught up in all those little things that are not going as planned, are out of my control or are just plain annoying unwanted surprises that life seems to send our way sometimes.

I’m very thankful for this little piece of the web I’ve created where I can curate and share things of beauty, offer advice and occasionally rant. This space makes me happy.

I am thankful for the the support of my husband and family regarding my businesses and design projects. 

I am thankful for creativity and sunlight, growth and progress.

Since I’ve started homeschooling my son, my days have been very different. It has been very challenging for me as a small business owner. The time to create, market and research has been cut down drastically. If you know me, you know that creating and being ensconced in my work is a huge part of who I am. So to have the time to do these things taken away has really forced me to get creative with my time and scheduling. And I can’t say I’ve been very good at it. The priorities have shifted. Honestly, there isn’t much time for both things. My main concern is my son. His well being, his education and his progress. But I find my desire to do the thing I love actively competing with my desire to do the thing I must. Which is educate my son to the best of my ability. And while I struggle with this daily, I’ve found, the best way to handle these types of situations is to sit in thankfulness.

I am thankful for God’s grace in my life.

I am both thankful and grateful, that I am able to homeschool my son.

I am thankful that I have another day before me to do better than I did yesterday. 

What are 5 things that you are thankful for today?
