“What are you grateful for today?” asked a recent Peaceful Daily blog post by Sandy Corso.
These were her musings on the subject: “Today I am grateful for…the woods, fast moving water, watermelon, my rebounder, my family, hydrangeas, Wheatie (our cat), dancing in the rain, hot yoga, my new Prius, string beans in the garden, Bosco (our dog), kindness, laughter, green juice, the sun, technology, Dr Bronner’s soap, fresh mountain air, my hair, synchronically, my eyes, big waves, my fearlessness, generosity and compassion!”
It’s easy to forget, isn’t it, the great many things we have to be grateful for every day? From the small gifts, like veggies in the garden, to the larger ones we take for granted: the air we breathe, the sun!
It’s especially easy to forget our blessings when complaints are right at our fingertips: it’s too hot, I’m tired, things didn’t go the way I wanted.
So, let’s do this together. Right now. Let’s think of 10 things we each have to be grateful for! I’ll start – please add yours to the comments!
