In case you haven’t noticed, I am all about gratefulness. Honestly, it is sometimes the only thing that keeps me going and I am truly indebted to the friends who support me in this way of life by exchanging gratitude lists on a daily basis.
On the good days, one of the first things I do is wake up grateful by listing ten things and emailing the list to my supportive friends. Other days, I am reminded by an email from one of them to turn my heart toward the abundance in my life.
Here’s my list today:
-Twinkle lights and Christmas decorations going up today.
-Turkey soup and family tradition tree decorating plans on Sunday.
-Hope for the future.
-The warm sunny place in my living room this lazy Friday morning.
-Cold, refreshing tap water.
-The furnace that keeps the house warm and cozy.
-Encouragement from friends.
-Knowing that I am precious and valuable to God and what people think of me (or the lies I believe about myself) does not change His view of me.
The “season” of thanksgiving is wrapping up and the attitude of get-me-what-I-want, wrap it up and put it under the tree, is consuming many.
Why not try waking up grateful for the blessings that cannot be purchased or wrapped each day this month?
I would love to read your list in the comments below.
