My weekly gratitude post, in the Celebrate the Small Things [ongoing] Blog Hop.

I’m grateful for giggly children, the end of soccer season 1, and rosy cheeks.

I’m grateful for the most complimentary manuscript rejection a girl could get.

I’m grateful for slow, steady empowerment.

I’m grateful for an agile mind, an open heart, and the will to start all over again.

What are you grateful for this week? How will you show thanks? Who is grateful for you? I am!
