Gratitude 19 – Christmas Eve

Yesterday, was so busy I didn’t do my list. We celebrated with my husband’s parents and then my mom came over and spent the night so she could be here Christmas morning. Writing this list was really nice because I got to stop and really appreciate every little thing I received, some of which I had already almost forgotten about but brought me great joy to remember.

  1. Lilian, Laurie, Jackie and Kate making a gratitude list and sending it to me today.
  2. almond milk soap
  3. a Caribou gift card
  4. a pink nail file on a circular soap lift
  5. fancy chocolates
  6. a glass refillable hand soap bottle

  8. Seaweed and Sea Salt Body Butter
