I am grateful for so much today!
Here’s a screenshot from Janetha’s blog with my cookie dough balls
I was shocked, thrilled, amazed, proud of, in awe of, and grateful to everyone who bid with such generosity in their hearts.
Not only on my cookie dough balls but on the entire auction.
The Great Fundraising Act was a huge success:
final winning bids total $23,210.
paypal cash donations as of tonight $3,222.
COMBINED AMOUNT RAISED = $26,432.
Susan and her family do not need to cash in their savings and Susan doesn’t have to work fulltime during cancer her treatments!
A huge thank you to Janetha for spearheading and organizing this event. You are a rockstar. I can only imagine the work you did behind the scenes and the emails. Oh, the emails.
And a huge thank you to everyone who bid yesterday on any items yesterday.
And a huge thank you to Carrie, who was the winning bidder on my Cookie Dough Balls, thank you so much!
I still don’t know who you are, but feel free to email me because I am definitely sending you more than just cookie dough balls!
2. I am also grateful to be featured on Katie Lee At Home’s Website today
A bit about Katie: “Katie’s broad culinary experience ranges from hosting the first season of Bravo’s hit reality series, Top Chef, to writing culinary and lifestyle features for an array of magazines. She regularly appears as a Special Correspondent, covering food and fashion for The Early Show, and has served on the Judges panel on the Food Network’s, Iron Chef America. She has been featured in Vogue, Town & Country, Cosmopolitan, The New York Times and on the Oprah Winfrey Show, among others.” She also has two published books.
I have been working with another woman, Kelli, who wrote the post. She and Katie are best friends and it’s truly been a joy getting to know Kellli. She and I have so much in common!
3. I am grateful for Skylar’s smiling face.
4. A lovely at-home yoga practice made me feel centered, grounded. Peaceful. I am grateful just to breath in, breath out some days!
5. And I’m grateful for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough & Marshmallow Stuffed Rice Krispie Bars
From my last post, 7 Links, thank you for the great comments and for telling me what posts you’ve liked of mine. And for sharing what catches your eye with other bloggers’ posts.
It’s so hard to narrow it all down! Thanks to newer readers who told me you enjoyed the post and all the links and were able to catch up on my older posts and a possibly few buried treasures in the process.
What are you grateful for?
I’ve done gratitude posts in the past and I believe it’s so important to be grateful especially when the chips are down. By focusing on what you do have and what’s right with the world and your life, rather than focusing on what you don’t have or what’s wrong with things, is really important and beneficial. We all have so much to be thankful and grateful for.
It’s also part of the mind over matter, a positive mental outlook and attitude, that I discussed in my Hard Work & Luck post last week.
So what’s brought a smile to your face today or what are you grateful for today or lately?
P.S. I am also grateful you’re liking the Raw Organic Honey Giveaway that began today.
