Saturday Gratitude CheckIn

My Saturday Gratitude Check-In

I’m starting a new weekend series where every Saturday I will recognize one thing I am grateful for! The Saturday Gratitude Check-In series will run every weekend and I hope you will all join in, in your own way so that we can all share something we are grateful for.

Today I am grateful for early morning cuddles with my girls.

As parents we often just want and need a few more minutes of sleep, especially on a Saturday morning after a hectic week.The reality is that this is not what happens. Children who struggle to get up for school for five days a week will almost, without fail, wake up half an hour earlier on a Saturday than on a week day. It’s just how it is.

With this gratitude series in mind, today I am grateful for this early morning wake-up call because I know that my girls love me and I know that I am blessed beyond measure.

What are you grateful for?

  1. I have listed my 10 things that I’m feeling grateful for this morning in my gratitude journal.
    One of which is that I’m so grateful for the ability to manifest my own lifestyle instead of being a victim to my circumstances.
    This weekend we have a hectic schedule with photo shoots and birthday parties which means no down time for us. It’s very tough and stressful to be self employed but this is part of the beauty in it. We make the choices about when we’re hectically on the go and when we shut down. It’s all very exciting, and we have fun as a family while we’re at it.

  2. I love this idea! And I love what you chose to be grateful for today – there’s nothing like cuddles from your little/s ❤️ even when you could do with just a little more sleep. ?
    I’m definitely going to join you on this, and I’ll link back to this post once I do. . xx

  3. What a lovely idea! I’d like to give it a go as well. Thanks for starting a positive movement. I have two little girls too and I totally agree. Cuddles are the best 🙂

  5. Good reminder to see things from our children’s point of view. we want that extra snooze time but they just want mommy to be with them. Some mornings my daughter literally tells me “mommy open your eyes, I am up”. we are loved!
