The festivities this weekend included the Deanna Rose Petting Farm and a local festival called The Maple Leaf Festival. The weekend also included lots of delicious food and meeting up with friends and family. It was wonderful!
On top of the great festivities, I was given gifts! I loved all the gifts I got this year but possibly the best was from my daughter. She slept in every morning of my three day weekend. It was wonderful!
Today it is the return of everyday life. Waking up way too early with my daughter and a day of chores and errands, followed by work. The year ahead will have many "average" days, possibly some rough ones, and lots of great days. There will be laughter and lots of family time. It will be full of gratitude because this year is a blessing.
I'm so grateful for a weekend of celebration. I'm grateful for everyone's time and attention and well wishes. I'm grateful for the outpouring of love and kindness I received. I'm grateful to look back at the last year and say it was a great year. I'm grateful for the year ahead and all the beauty and blessings to come. I'm grateful for all the average days that make the great days that much greater. I'm grateful for my amazing family. I'm grateful to get to pick several ways to celebrate and I'm grateful for everyone, including the weather's, cooperation. I'm grateful for all the love I feel.
What were some blessings you experienced over the last year? What will you celebrate about the year ahead?
May we all find joy in the gift of another year. May we celebrate the beauty in each day. Have a beautiful day!
