Three weeks into #30daysofgratitude and I am speechless at how good I feel. By now you know I’ve had a gratitude practice for a bit. It sure isn’t perfect, but it works for me. Life is better when I live with an attitude of gratitude. But the sharing of the gratitude? I had no idea it would somehow magnify my feelings of awe and wonder at the miracle that I get to wake up every day and live and love and write.
Another glorious week in November and another list filled with all things gratitude. Here it goes.
I’m grateful for Sunday dinners. I’m grateful I know how to make my mom’s gravy and meatballs. I’m beyond grateful I taught my husband how to make them too. Because now he makes the meatballs for me and I make the gravy. It’s a team effort and I love it.
I’m grateful I get to see my mom every Sunday for said Sunday dinners. She is always sweet and bubbly and excited to see the kids. She is helpful – always. And kind – always.
I’m grateful for my little brother. He is always so gracious, so complimentary, so happy to be around.
I’m grateful for my big brother. He is the best at keeping in touch and keeping it real. He brings the calm wherever he goes.
I’m grateful for Adele. That voice! Those lyrics! Can we talk about Adele? How is that girl only 25 years old? Belting it out again?! More on Adele in another post.
I’m grateful for the laughter I share with my baby boy. My teenage son cracks me up with his humor, his down to earth conversation and his willingness to teach and be taught. This kid. This kid.
I’m grateful my daughter trusts me enough to tell me about her life. It doesn’t get better than this. It’s not always easy – but when it counts, she talks.
I’m grateful for my youth, what it taught me, what I’ve lost, what I’ve gained, all I’ve learned. Feeling reflective today and while I have some regrets of course, I’ve learned so much.
Do you have a gratitude list today? What’s on it? Let me know in the comments below!
