~ very grateful to Rhonda Hetzel at Down to Earth blog. Rhonda mentioned my blog as part of her post on suggested weekend reading. Thanks to Rhonda I had many new visitors to my blog on the weekend. A couple of new people left comments on my blog and I received some lovely emails. Thank you Rhonda and thank you to the people who visited.

Linking up with Lisa at Hullabaloo Homestead for 'growing gratitude.' Due to the time difference Lisa's post should be there tonight or tomorrow morning Australia time.
.:Beauty and simplicity surround us all the time and are things that I try to embrace as often as I can slow down to see. Every Monday I will be posting…a “growing gratitude” post. Basking in our own state of gratitude as well as the gratitude of others always seems uplifting to me. Plus, I always love a good positive start to the beginning of each week. I will put a Mr. Linky at the end of each week’s post in hopes that some of you may want to join in this mindfulness journey with me. You can formulate your own posts however you want to…lots of pictures, or none; lots of thoughts, or maybe just one profound one. The main gist is to share whatever you are feeling grateful for in your life…right now; here and now; in the present. I’ve included a button as well, so if you’re interested, you can grab a button and link back to each week’s post. So let’s begin, shall we?:.
I too think a gratitude post is a lovely way to start the week. Thanks Lisa for the suggestion.
I hope you have a lovely week. Thanks for reading. xxoo Julie
