For a full night’s sleep…
For women who mother with me: My mom,
aunts, friends, with kids and without
For a house with new windows and heat and air conditioning
For a job that allows me to combine my interests and passions
For friends who make me think and stretch my ideas
For flowers delivered
One of my book clubs just finished reading Half the Sky. I had read it years ago and it was such a reminder of all I have to be grateful for. One woman, whose son is on the autism spectrum, even said that having a kid with autism seemed like a “first world problem” after reading this book. I take time daily to write my 1000 Gifts and try to notice the little things, but sometimes life and the need for more overwhelms and I become dissatisfied.
Being grateful has become a practice – one I am no where close to mastering, but continuing to practice.
What are you grateful for?
