Our family has a tradition that during Thanksgiving dinner we take turns saying what we’re grateful for. Sometimes the things we’re grateful for are big important milestones and sometimes they’re very simple; but no matter, big or small they are all meaningful.
I think gratitude is one of the easiest ways to connect with our lives and although I make it a daily practice it never ceases to warm my heart to hear what my family is grateful for once a year.
Some of the things I am most grateful for are:
~ My amazing family
~ My friends, both old and new
~ My pups – even though they drive me a bit batty some days
~ My home, it welcomes me regardless of how often I vacuum
~ The trees around my home that make me feel like I live in a park
~ My books for the knowledge, entertainment and comfort they offer me
~ For being creative almost daily with my blog and my photography
Life is good!
