~ Gratitude ~



I'm participating in Heidi's Wednesday Gratitude.  I am also a member of a women's internet site and we maintain a monthly Gratitude post ~ everyone contributes as they feel led to.  I started keeping a gratitude journal eons ago.  Did you ever see Sarah ban Breathnach on Oprah's show? She made regular appearances and she suggested just listing a minimum of 5 things each day that you feel grateful for.  Her book, "Simple Abundance", elaborates on this.  I promise you ~ if you do this it will change your life!  As you continue the process, your list will become longer.  :-)

Today, I'm grateful for ~
. my health
. my family
. being safe and warm
. laughter
. dear friends
. being able to pay my bills
. creativity
. great coffee
. healthy food
. fresh water
. my computer
. $1 sale at Michael's   :-)
. choices

What are you grateful for?
xoxo

Hi Pat!
Thanks so much for joining the Gratitude party at Heart and Home.
I linked you up, and will e-mail you with the directions.
I love your list, with the exception of the coffee - (change that to a nice cup of tea) that could be my list, too!
Have a wonderful day, hope you'll be back next Wed..
XO

That is a wonderful list. At this moment, I'm grateful that my parents are visiting my daughter and that my pup is sleeping at my feet.

What a nice list Pat. I can agree with it all! Just looking through your blog, it is apparent that you practice gratefulness as much as you can. Thanks for reminding us that it is ongoing and to be practiced daily. I will begin my grateful list tomorrow morning. -Delores
