Gratitude – Friday Feb 19


This week, I’m grateful for the restorative powers of a calm day at home.

I’m grateful for this yoga sequence, which rescued me from serious back pain.

Grateful for this quote from Ella, as we were on our way to a grain meeting: “. . . and I’m going to talk about emmer!”

Grateful for this reminder from Kyce, on letting go of guilt and starting anew.

Grateful for my kind, sweet family.

Grateful for this family, too – these animals we steward, who remind us of the important rhythms of the day – the movement of the warming winter sun, hay, water, and more hay.  Grateful for these sweet sheep who love Ella, come to her to sniff and nuzzle her, while she giggles in delight.


Wishing you moments of gratitude in your days.

    How lovely. I love the picture of your sheep. They so look like something to be grateful for.

    You look very serene in this picture amongst your flock. There is something perfect about the pairing of sheep and young children. That kind of serenity and sureness is something we lack around this parts – maybe a bit more simplicity and fresh air is the answer. Can it really be that simple? Thanks for the food for thought : )

    It has proven to be a great combo, true! They are very sweet girls (and our sheep are a particularly large breed, btw). Let me know if you have any sheep questions! I do find having animals to be very, very grounding for all of us.

    Baaa. The last photo makes me bleat with contentment, it’s so full of sweetness.
    Can’t stop thinking about natural dyes for that wool.
