  1. I hope you get a chance to explore Seattle during the hustle and bustle. This native Seattleite wishes she was there!

    1. I didn't get much chance to explore Seattle but we did get downtown one day so I did get to see a little. It jus means I will have to go back someday!

  2. Loved the thought of a mother reading to her child on a plane - would that more mothers would do this more plane rides would be pleasant.

    1. I loved that too! It was one of my favorite blessings during the week. And I agree I wish more mothers would read to their children like that too.

  3. I love #14 the bestest!

  4. Congrats on a very successful October! I love your extensive list of blessings. I'm turning my attention to rebuilding my gratitude attitude in November. Your timely post is God's reminder that this is so very important. Thanks!

    1. Liz, glad that my post is a great reminder to you to remember the blessings in your life. Hope your attitude of gratitude is going well this month!
