The Little Things

“A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues.”—Cicero
With Thanksgiving approaching hopefully all of us are thinking about more than just what yummy food we will have that day. Today I am thankful for the little things. Like this morning when I went to make my coffee and I see the little measuring scoop I use that was my Dad’s and it makes me smile. Its like having a cup of coffee with him in the morning. Or when I make Earl Grey Tea and I think of all the tea and tea parties I had with my Grandmother…or the girl in my Chem. class who has been wearing essential oils lately and that smell makes me feel like my Mom is sitting with me in class….Or that beautiful, contagiously giggly smile I see daily on my Daughters face.I am a big family person and for the most part have the best family ever so the holidays are my favorite time of year. On my Dad's side of the family we are one of those rare occurrences now a days, we all still get together on a very regular basis..not just holidays, all 40something of us and I love it! 
How could anyone not LOVE this smile!
Now for a little update…This week I am doing much better than last week emotionally but I still am talking things over with Gym and we havent quite made up yet. Mostly I’m just trying to finish up these last few crazy weeks of class and get through exams. I did however manage to delete the X’s number out of my phone last week and I was supposed to have a date today for lunch but the guy flaked on me. Oh well such is life.

Current weight: 198 lbs :(
Total loss: 27 lbs
Emotion: loving my short week and super excited to be spending time with my Family on Thursday!
Goals: Drink my water..I have been having a terrible time doing this lately

Peace, Love and Happy Blogging


  1. I love the photos of the little coffee spoon, and it's meaning ... and you know I love to see that smile, ;). Today, and always, I am thankful for both you and Tay, and wish you both a wonderful holiday together. <3
