I woke up to the sounds of birds chirping. One of my favorite things. The sun was shining. Another one of my favorite things. I went outside to water my succulents and noticed more jasmine flowers along the backyard fence, just like last year. My husband was in the garage, gathering some things for work. He said he planted the jasmine flowers back there and also outside in the front, in the same place just like last year.  Hearing this made me so happy.

The jasmine flowers are planted right along the front driveway. I love that I open my car door when I first arrive home and the first thing I smell is the smell of jasmine and first thing I see are beautiful white jasmine flowers.

I was so happy this morning that I gave my husband a big hug right in the garage.

It's Friday today. Last day of the work week. I brought two of my dark chocolate peanut butter cups to work to share with friends. Sharing my homemade sweet treats. Another one of my favorite things to do.

It was also "Matching Fridays" at work today. Today's theme was Flower skirt or shirt. I wore my flower dress.

My T.G.I.Friday list to be grateful for:

Holding hands with my husband at night  and then hugs in the morning
Holding and cuddling my son when he first wakes up
Waking my daughter up and greeting her good morning, every morning in her room

Jasmine flowers
Sharing treats with my friends, Runnergirl, Magster and Graceg
Tomorrow is baseball and Joshua will be "back catcher". I love watching him play baseball.
Preparing the baseball snacks for the baseball players tomorrow. I love the looks on the boys' face when they open their bags of snacks.

Today has been an up and down day, but holding steady at up. Meditation helps. Reciting my favorite things helps. This gratitude journal helps. 

Until Tomorrow...
Sweet Monday
