Starting my year with a greatful heart!

 I watched this  (and part two)today because we couldn't go to church today(our car is broken and Jake is still recovering so he hasn't been able to fix it , so we have  been walking everywhere but Jake can't go for long walks at the moment so its church on the ipad while I fold laundry!) and it helped me so much.

Last year was so exhausting, in the rush and transitions not only was I slowly getting more overwhelmed by the situations i was put into, but when I needed to search for my blessings I got out of a habit of being grateful. I've been so spent, not celebrating the small things and focusing on my to do list just makes me anxious, emotional, and irritable. I need to realize that this short time my children are little my work will never be done, and thats okay, it isn't something I can control so I might as wall not stress about it.

 This year I'm determined to get myself back to a habit of gratefulness, a part of that is being here more often, blogging has always helped me to look for the lovely bits of my day, sweet moments, even if its something small like a moment of knitting and tea.

So here are a few pictures of my grateful moments over the last two weeks...

finally finishing the body to a cardigan, and the ability to improvise when i have the wrong amount of stitches, "I'll make a raglan cardigan instead!"
