Thankful Thursday

We've had two weeks of rain, chilly temperatures and overall gloomy weather.  One evening after dinner, Shylee began yelling at us to come see outside.  None of us wanted to get up at that moment, but she was adamant about us seeing the color outside the front door.  I was the first one to get up and go see, and I realized what she was excited about.  The color was an eerie yet awesome yellow and pink glow unlike anything I've ever seen before.  I got the camera but didn't really capture the fascinating color and feel of the moment.  While I was snapping away from the front porch, Shylee was yelling at us to come see the rainbow in the backyard.  I think the whole neighborhood heard her!  It's amazing how a few minutes of watching and listening to Shylee's excitement about a rainbow, turned yet another gloomy day into one of wonder and joy. I'm thankful for days like that.

I'm also thankful for:
     ~ the brief five minutes of sunshine this week
     ~ a new computer
     ~ my sewing room to escape to
     ~ a good thunderstorm
     ~ May
     ~ my Mom
     ~ being Sean's and Erin's mom
     ~ the rainbow after the storm
     ~ seeing life through the eyes of a child

What are you thankful for this week?


  1. I love rainbows and you captured a gorgeous one! Glad Shylee spotted it :) Yay for your new computer!

  2. Life through a child's eye is such a wonderful thing, and reminds of things we miss when our lives seem to get crowded with so many other things

  3. Life through the eyes of a child - oh YES!!

  4. Oh A, that is so amazing :)

    What a lovely list to be grateful for :)

    Cheers, T. :)
