Wednesday Gratitude #15 at Heart and Home: Calm Mornings



It's that time again! Welcome back to Wednesday Gratitude, please link your actual Gratitude post, and remember to link back to Heart and Home in your post. Linky Tools will be open by 6:00 PM PST.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment when you're done linking up, and please try to visit the other participants, too!  I find it very inspiring to read the thoughtful and insightful gratitude posts each week.

"I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder." - G.K. Chesterton

The days can get hectic around here.
That is why
I'm thankful that my mornings are relatively quiet and stress free.
I'm thankful that, after getting my daughters and husband out the door, I have some time to myself.
I usually work-out, and then read the local paper, while I eat my breakfast.

I'm always thankful when berries are in season.
In this part of the country, we have strawberries for eight or more months a year.
They are grown just a few miles from here, on rolling hills and wide open fields.

Blackberries from my garden will be ripe by July.
I'm very thankful for the berry vines that grow with very little tending just outside my door! 

Today:  No eggs and bacon for me.
No cereal or toast.
No pancakes or waffles.
I'm thankful I can choose instead a bagel with cream cheese and apricot jam,
delicious and perfect, in my opinion.

One of the agenda items of the morning includes staring out the window for awhile.
I need to check the weather, watch the birds, and decide my plan of attack for the day.
Before the day attacks me!

The flowers are from my garden.
Lavender scents the air - one more thing to be thankful for!

I'm thankful for the many small details that beautify my surroundings and enrich my life.
I'm thankful for a calm start to days that are usually full and busy.
I'm thankful for the full and busy parts of my day, too!

How do you start your day?  Do you have time to yourself, or are you running around like crazy from the moment you rise 'till you fall into your bed at night?
Speaking of beds, isn't it lovely to have one to fall into?!
Something else I'm extremely thankful for!

And one more thing:
I'm thankful that you stopped by today!

If you are following Heart and Home, welcome back. If you're new here, sign up to become a follower, or subscribe for e-mail alerts. I'll be so thankful you did, and you won't miss a thing!

Heidi, beautiful flowers and what a healthy breakfast. I wish I had tall flowers for cuttings to bring in like those. I guess I could cut some off my hanging basket out front. I usually start the day with coffee and reading blogs. Addicted I think! Have a super day.

I love the photos you've shared today! What a delight to have so many fresh berries so near ~ and I adore blackberries! I love apricots too so your bagel is very appealing. A beautiful breakfast for a beautiful lady ~

Enjoy your day!

Hi Heidi,

I'm one of those that runs around crazy. I work about 50 hours a week and I was just asked to work 55 hours a week. I thank God for the financial blessing but I'm exhausted. When I see the pictures on your blog, I am transformed into a world of simple beauty and tranquility.

I'm glad you received the apron and I sincerely appreciate you mentioning it.

Have a good week!
Yoli :)

Hi Heidi!

A wonderful "thankful" post today! I have so many thing to be thankful for. I am a truly blessed woman!

We get so much negative thrown at us on a regular basis that it is a good reminder to step back ad acknowledge all the wonderful things we have in our lives!

First time here, so I joined Gratitude Wednesday. Everything looks lovely.

Melissa Miller said...

Your breakfast and flowers look wonderful. Yummy!

Blessings to you sweet friend. ~Melissa :)

What a beautiful floral display...I have some lavender growing, I think I'll go cut me some to bring inside. I have linked up and am now a follower.

Carmie, the Single Nester said...

Your breakfast looks delicious. I am grateful for wonderful blogging friends who have been so supportive during this difficult time I am facing.

Brenda@Cozy Little House said...

I start the day with some yoga/stretching on the floor. Then it's up and into the shower. Fix myself a cup of coffee. While it's brewing I eat my cereal, topped with fruit, while I read my email. Then with coffee it's moving right along to blogs. Am I obsessive and anal? Nooooo! I'm grateful I have the luxury of my compulsive little schedule.

Brenda@Cozy Little House said...

Might I add that I'm also thankful today that your blog didn't make me type in little screwy letters, that, if on the first try I get wrong, I must start all over again. Mighty thankful indeed.

Kerry said...

Hi Heidi, this is my first visit here via Brenda at Cozy Little House so I'm grateful for her introduction. I'll be back!

Denise Marie said...

Hello Heidi, love the post!! I wish I had lavender filling my room. I'd have tagged in yesterday but my computer gave me fits and I had to fight to get my post even on. I'm not even tagged in to Rednesday...it wouldn't link. computer woes..lol
