Every Friday my calendar flashes what is on my publishing schedule. Many many months ago I set aside Fridays as the day to post my gratitudes. Many times I failed to follow though for various reasons. Yet, every Friday the thought of my gratitudes hover in the back of my mind throughout the day.
This week I have so many things I can directly list that I am grateful for that I am overwhelmed.
1) My children with all the ups and downs of life with kids. When I think hard on this, what Joy that is to be had is in watching them grow.
2)Dream Walker, The universe has a strange way of using 2×4’s to knock me upside the head more than once as proof to how stubborn I can be. His presence in my life I have always been thankful for even in my darkest of moments.
3)Four leaf clovers. I found several this week and I left them behind, unpicked. I took pictures of them. I will keep that feeling of hitting a jackpot with me.
4)Not forgetting to accept instruction and learning. It’s a Delphi maxim and it’s one I subscribe to greatly. I find that life is better when I struggle to grow as a person rather than to coast with the flow. I struggle to find fertile ground in which to bloom and it’s that journey I am thankful for.
5) I want to say sunshine. It’s not quite that. It’s the early morning light, that’s got a touch of dusky orange of early spring. It’s lasts just a short while in May. It is starting to fade now. I see the photos I take are becoming a bit more strong in contrast. And I am missing that glow of light that felt so magical. It will be missed.
So this is my week’s wrap-up. What five things can you point to in your week as something you are supremely grateful for? Blog about it and share with me, hmm?
