Pouring Gratitude

Artwork by Lori Portka
I don’t know what’s going on here.  I think my capacity for gratitude and love has reached some kind of tipping point.

I’m here in the quiet of my morning, spilling tears of gratitude all over the place.  

Maybe it’s something about the #22, today is the 22nd day of writing about my butterflies (gratitude list).  I don’t know.  

First, I read this post by the absolutely precious Lori Portka that touched me to the very core of my being.  Would you just look at her artwork? 

And then my beautiful sister emailed and shared some very happy news.

And I have so many ideas and things from my heart I want to share. I can't contain it all...just letting it all pour.

I adore you, lovely people.  Thank you for being here.  For coming back.  For leaving your sweet words with me.  For being so beautifully you.  Thank you.


  1. Exhale. What beauty you have here. I had the same reaction to Lori's post! It was like a jolt of electric love.

    Thank you for this cuddly spot of sweetness today.

    Love you,


  2. i love lori!
    i love julia!

  3. Julia,

    Your words of gratitude brought an abundance of excitement to my heart.


  4. Julia. Seriously. I am again, at a loss for words. Just know that I hold you in the highest light and I honor you, my friend.

    Blowing you gratitude kisses.

  5. It sounds and feels like you are having an experience of pure grace. I think I'm going to start writing gratitudes every day - you're such a huge inspiration to me, Julia.

    Thank you - and thanks to Lori for her wonderful art!



What are you thinking/feeling? I'd really love to know...

♥ Julia
