Sunday Gratitude 12.21.14


giving thanks #1551 – 1560

celebrating Katie’s birthday today

Amazon Prime (thank you, thank you)

nearing the end of Christmas shopping

menus planned and groceries purchased for the week

a lovely piano recital for Annarose and Sunshine (despite Annarose being sick)

New Year’s cards that will be right on time

the peace of a sleeping household

Christmas cookies (I’m pretty sure Scandinavian Almond Bars can be eaten for breakfast)

Eby, wrapped in his red blanket, snuggling next to me as I type

friends who invited Dimples to dinner on Friday and then kept her for 24 hours – she had so much fun

On this Sunday, with Christmas only days away, what are you thankful for?

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.
