Grounded in Gratitude

Seems fitting, this  month of November, to start my blog with an attitude of gratitude. I want  the foundation of my life, and this blog, to be love and thankfulness.  Some practices which are helping me:

1. A daily practice of writing down three things for which I am grateful. I jot them down in my journal, numbering them as I go. Some days I see more than three, others I struggle for one. Perspective is a fickle friend. The harder I have to look clues me into how far I have strayed from my heart.  At A Holy Experience, Ann Voskamp gives you prompts if you get stuck.

Random three:

86. a day begun with rain

61. balloons filled with helium

62. eyelashes for fluttering butterfly kisses

2. Taking a daily picture has also helped me see the beauty of my life. Some prompts here if needed.


My name is sprinkles. An art piece begun.

3. Breathe. Taking the time to draw a breath helps me ground and remember what is most valuable. The present moment. I Rest here.
