Gotta have Gratitude…Posted: April 9, 2012
Today, I am thankful
that I have children who are happy and well,
and parents who are well and happy,
that my skin is not so dry and my eyes don’t want to cry,
and I’m grateful for my weird rhyming ways.
Robins scurry to within a foot of me before they flutter away, which makes me feel both trusted, and a part of Nature.
Water. (’nuff said.)
Music, dancing. The two together, especially when there are two together. Which reminds me, I am grateful for my imagination, and that I am a hopeful and optimistic person.
I am grateful to the artisans and builders of the houses in my neighborhood. Each time I take a walk, I notice another stunning architectural detail.
Thank goodness for a sense of humour, and for the Frasier Moon-Dance episode that I watched last night (Season 3, I think) that made me laugh.
“Vulnerability is the new black” (and that someone cared to tell me so).
I am thankful for the mutability of the sky, and for its beauty, its colours and its light.
Wild blueberries can be purchased frozen, so I can get them anytime.
I’m glad that my father gave me an appreciation of style, art, architecture, and all things beautiful.
I’m grateful that my grandma gave me Anne of Green Gables when I was a little girl; books have always provided such good company.
I am grateful for Youtube, weather.com, and wordpress. And search engines.
The shower is hot nearly as soon as I turn it on.
I’m glad that I can talk with almost anyone. It is one of my best attributes, and I’m grateful for it.
I’m glad that my laundry is done.
Thank goodness that I still have an old cd player that lets me put a song or a piece of music on repeat, because sometimes I have to listen to the same one over and over.
Ahhh, the scent of lemon, or lavender, or spices like cinnamon and cloves…
It is wonderful to have a library, a market, and parks, all within walking distance.
I am grateful for the sensitive souls and kind people whom I meet; you give me hope for the world and make me feel less alone.
What are you grateful for today?
