Filled With Gratitude

Good morning, peeps! How was your weekend?  I had a great one. I spent my Saturday hanging out with my girlfriend, Lori, who I haven't seen for a while. It was so good to catch up. But, that's not the only great thing. While we were having lunch, suddenly the waiter told us that the people on the booth next to us had paid for our lunch.

We both were  very surprise and of course, thankful. Then, we came home, only to realize that I have left my I-phone at the restaurant. Feeling slightly panic, I had hubby called the restaurant immediately & luckily, the waitress had turned the phone to the manager, so I'm able to get my phone back.

That evening as I reflect back on the day, I am filled with so much gratitude. I am thankful for good, loyal friend. For kind strangers random act of kindness (and I plan on paying it forward), for the honest people that keep my phone safe. I mean, I truly look at that day as a reminder to always be grateful. 

I like to think that this Saturday was the result of this new habit that hubby and I started practicing this past week. Every night before we go to sleep we tell each others what's the best thing that happened to him/me for that day. By doing this, it teach us the habit to see the good things in daily life. 

I'd like to encourage you to try this as well. My mom always teach me that when you're grateful, good things happen. :)

Now, that I share that, let's get on to card, shall we. After all, we do have new sketch challenge from SugarPea Designs.

Here's my card:

I used the watercolor technique on this fairy and end up with this beautiful, soft coloring. I hope you will play along with us. To see all the challenge & prize detail please go to SugarPea Designs Blog.
