I'm thankful for...

Guess what today is? It's, I'm thankful Friday over here at alittleglassbox & like last week I invite all of you to leave a comment as to what you are thankful for. Today I am thankful for the ability to be able to enjoy the simple things. Even as a little girl I found pleasure in climbing bales of hay, flying through the air in a tire swing, and eating peanut butter & honey sandwiches. As an adult... a simple drive, a steaming hot 190 degree latte, a sweet comment from a reader, Starbucks ice, or the smell of laundry detergent once the hot water hits it, all make me ridiculously happy. As I get older I am becoming more aware that this love of simplicity is not only what gets me through the days and what makes the moments of my life in-between the huge events more fun, but I'm realizing that not everyone has this ability. So today I am thankful for finding happiness in the tiny moments, which make this time of year so much more special. I get to enjoy family, birthdays, twinkle lights, cold weather, cute coats, dark nights, and even pumpkin pie (which pretty much rocks my world).



You have got to try this recipe, it makes my taste-buds bust out in dance at the club. Just sayin'. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend full of simple moments of your own. Hug your family, take a funny photo, dance in the street, or take a bubble bath. No matter what, find that smile and that thankful spirit-it's contagious!

  1. I enjoyed reading this. It is so true what you said, many people do not have the ability to be happy or content with the simple things. My parents raised 4 kids on a shoestring that was sometimes frayed but as I grew up and became an adult it has helped me be content and happy even when things weren't the easiest. I am thankful to have the parents that I have and all the things they taught me and still continue to teach me.

  2. Darling Courtney!
    My Fav eye for fine design. Might I pick your mind again?
    I have chosen gold lighting and a gold chandelier for my kitchen. My cabinets are cream. The ceiling is beige. Should I leave it that color or paint it white before hanging the lighting?

    With highest admiration,
    Lisa

  3. "happiness in the tiny moments", I love this too. I am thankful for those very small but important moments: the smell of laundry fresh from the dryer; watching the face of my little one when he sleeps in on a Saturday morning; taking my little with me to the car wash while he imagines we are on a ship and the wash sounds like a thunder storm at sea; stepping into my warm home on a cold day. For all this and more, I am thankful.

  4. The past 10 days have been stressful to say the least. Our area (New Jersey) was hit really hard and we were without power for 9 days so I'm SO thankful for heat, electricity and hot water; and of course my family to enjoy it with!

    I just found your blog by way of The Lennoxx and I just became a follower! Looking forward to spending some time reading your older posts. Have a great weekend!

  5. I'm thankful for my extended family. I recently asked my special needs nephew why he loved Christmas so much. After some thought he replied, "you know how on Christmas everyone comes to our house.... I like that". I love that boy.

  6. I am thank you for close friends. Real friends, not facebook "friends." And I am thankful for truth, especially the nuggets in your blog. Please know that you provide a type of "rescue" with your big heart and persistent honesty.

  7. All of you are so incredibly sweet and I feel so honored to have your share your thoughts and stories with me. It makes my day.

    Sweet sweet Lisa. If you want the light to stick out more I would paint it either a more contrasting color or white. If you want it to blend in you can keep it the same. Best of luck! xo
