Gratituesday: the birds are singing

Gratituesday is a weekly blog post (that I try to keep up with) I got involved with over here. You should join, too! If you do, be sure to let me know in the comments as I would love to read what you write about. On Sunday I woke up pretty early (like 6am early) so I sat down at my computer to churn out some work before everyone else woke up (my dad was visiting). As I was sitting there working away, I heard a few birds singing outside. The sound made my heart smile so big! Is this it? Is spring just around the corner? Apparently the groundhog says so!

I know we all experience a winter funk, but I think I redefined the low for myself last week. All I can say is that I am so glad that week is over, that I still have friends (hah, seriously), the birds are singing, and that spring is right around the corner. Altogether, I feel completely refreshed and encouraged (and really loved).

Okay the birds didn't do all of that... but they really did lift my spirits a bit and so far I've heard them singing both mornings since Sunday, so I hope they are back for good!

So this week... I am grateful for another simple thing... the singing birds.

What about you? What are you grateful for this week?
