{Thankful} 2016


2016 has so many things to be thankful for…

  • the long hours talking with my husband as we worked on remodeling projects
  • many hours of peaceful painting while listening to podcasts 😉
  • my trip to England and Paris with my mom and sister, so many memories of beauty
  • our home educating journey following the philosophy of Charlotte Mason, a new confidence in the methods and a relaxed enjoyment of what we are learning together
  •  Charlotte Mason book study and community group, Excelsior Guild
  •  precious children to love
  •  my husband and I growing in our marriage, and Chinese food/thrift store dates
  • our new home, Hearth Ridge, and the surrounding natural beauty
  • the sale of our previous home, Hidden Valley, bittersweet, yet so thankful for finding a buyer that loved it as much as we did
  • my beautiful reclaimed wood built-in library ❤
  • books, oh my dear friends 😉
  • my hard-working husband, allowing me to stay home with our children
  • health
  • good friends, coffee, book, and life chats
  • my kitchen cabinet knobs, small in size, but big in personality. So cheerful!
  • new niece on my side and new nephew on my husband’s side
  • memoir writing class
  • the lovely Presence of the Lord throughout my days


Wanna share your list? Please feel free to in the comments! I’d love to hear.

    1. Hi Sherry! Happy New Year, friend. Its at a nearby library…it’s more of a group versus a class. We all share our writing and have words etc that we write from. I just found it recently and I love it. Once a month is doable for me too since it’s pretty close.


      1. That sounds great!

        And thank you for inspiring gratitude! I will be writing my list tomorrow. God is so good to us–I have MUCH to be thankful for.

        Happy New Year to you! You are a blessing, Amy! 💜
