{A Grateful Heart}

Linking up with one of my favorites; Emily from Ember Grey for a Grateful Heart. I love this link-up and that it makes me stop and realize all of the blessings in my life; big and small. Life can get crazy and mundane all at the same time, but there is always something to be grateful for. 

“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever” 
(1 Chronicles 16:34).

+ spring time; the flowers, the bluebonnets, the colors, the sunshine, & even the rain
+ longer days
+ mason's neighbor friends
+ a little boy that loves to play outside until sundown
+ a dirt-covered little boy that smell of outside {means time well spent}
+ cuddle time
+ snowcone dates
+ cameras & new & old photographs
+ back country roads
+ dreams
+ smell of fresh cut grass
+ that the storms yesterday were not as severe as they predicted
+ front {and back} porches
+ baseball
+ my sweet soul sister and our daily snaps {Love you Ashlea!!!}
+ and of course, my darling little family

What are you grateful for this week?

Oh and also, this linkup With Heavens to Betsy went live today. I goofed and posted this way too early. Oops!!

Grateful Heart w/ Ember Grey


  1. I'm Greatful for wonderful friends an family :)

  2. Nothing says Spring like dirt-covered boys and fresh cut grass! Such a sweet list :)

  3. What a great list, and a great reminder also. :)

  4. Such a great reminder. I pray a prayer every day of thanks. There is so much to be thankful for. Love your list!

  5. I love spring grateful lists. Though it snowed here last night and left white after the ground after a previous week of temperatures in the 20s Celcius. Cruel! I'm going to review your list again and remember what warm spring weather is supposed to be like!

  6. Amen to longer days! I feel like I get so much more done!

  7. Starting each day with a thankful heart really changes your outlook on life. These are wonderful things to be thankful for!

  8. MMmmm snowcones, so looking forward to that this summer! I'm grateful for my families upcoming move to Spain :)

  9. Aw love this! I am grateful for my health, cuddle time with Marli, and Mother's Day Out (haha!)

  10. Love this! So many blessings. And I love that we can spend the evenings outside now, since the afternoons are so hot.

  11. The longer days, and dirty boys - yes!
    I miss the smell of fresh cut grass. We don't have a whole lot of grass in these parts (thanks, drought), so that smell is one we are treated to often.
    Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  12. I am most certainly grateful for the longer days too! And back country roads hold a special place in my heart. I spent so many hours driving on them while in high school... thinking about life, crying about a boy, and singing to music at the top of my lungs. :) Thanks for linking up, Crystal!


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
