Seven Gratitudes is a weekly gratitude practice. Several of my friends and I linkup every Friday to share the ways we notice the bubbling and swirling growth of grace in our lives. Thanks for joining the fun!
This week I am grateful for…
The amplified joy of life with friends.
St. Patrick was well remembered Friday night ‘round the Coyle-Carr table. We were blessed with the presence of our friends and the gift of our friends becoming friends with one another.
Aaron and I made a cottage pie, roasted broccoli, and a green apple tart. Stephanie made a Rainbow Salad, which I thought was clever and very luck-o-the-Irish of her!, and Laurie and Adam supplied Irish beers for all.
Wes and Meg stayed the night in our guest room and shared pancakes with us Saturday morning. Weekend mornings are just wonderful anyway, but then to share that blissful grogginess with some our best friends—that’s a little bit of heaven!
I am thankful for the way friends make time slow down. Or, rather, they help me experience every moment as it happens. With every breath, laugh, and story I am drawn directly into the perfect grace of the present moment.
Talk about life-giving. <3
