Thankful Wednesday?

What an awesome day has been sent my way today!

First, it was supposed to be the day when I officially 'acknowledged' my dear Caitlin's tribute post where I was honored to have been mentioned, and mentioned in such an incredibly heartwarming way. Caitie wrote it long ago, and I'm still wondering just how come I missed THIS (there are photos there as well, come take a look):

...Late in 2009, I stumbled upon a Blog written by a Russian girl. I was instantly attracted to The Thank You Project as the author, Julia, had embarked on a journey to find something to be thankful for every day for a year. I seriously couldn't get enough of her posts - she made me think differently about my world.  

That was then and here we are today almost 2 years later and we still have blog interactions regularly. When she was podcast on an Australian radio channel due to her drive to 'be thankful', I poured a glass of Pinot Noir and listened to it on my computer. I value what she has to say.

Next thing I know, I come home in the evening and find even more beauty and kindness awaiting me! First it's the lovely feature on the Fanx' Blog by Mitch and then it's a sweet tweet from a fellow thankful person and a new follower Laura Faulkner of ThankfulForThisDay website. 

Definitely an incredible stuff to come home to. Thank you all so much, you truly made my day!..


  1. You deserve the positive recognition. Keep up the good work here.

  2. Congrats on your feature, darling!


  3. Your blog DOES inspire a lot of people. Sometimes we're to busy and stressed trying to survive the hustle and bustle of everyday life that we forget there are so many things to be thankful for. Your stories and thoughts remind us of that :)

  4. Congratulations, Julia! Your blog serves as a daily reminder of all of the thing is our lives that we have to be grateful for, no matter how small they may seem. What you are doing is wonderful.


  5. aw, so cute!!! :) It's easy to miss posts on people's page if you're off by even one day! :) I totally get it. I'm glad I could help make your day! What a nice way for her to tweet you, I LOVE her wording!!

  6. ..awww , that is so sweet from Caitlin , but you know what ! - I agree with every word she wrote are amazing and you change my world as well ..


I appreciate you taking the time to connect and share your thoughts, so thank you for your comment! And while you're at it... Why not tell me what you're thankful for today? ;-)
