Last year I read a blog or article (I could kick myself for not writing down where I read this), that we should keep a Grateful List – little notes, written on a whim, kept in a dish, cup, or on a list.
I grabbed an Angry Birds cup and designated it my Grateful Cup.
My cup runneth over!
In just six months, I have so many Grateful Notes, I had to clean out the cup.
Dont’ forget the small stuff
We are all grateful for family, a roof over our heads, a good job, a nice car. But my Grateful Notes are small things – the small things that add up to a huge amount of grateful!
I’d like to share some of my Grateful Notes with you.
So…I’m grateful for –
A beautiful sunrise
I can pay my bills
New kitchen and bath towels
I have everything I need to live a comfortable life
The neighbor pushing me out of the snow, out of the parking lot
A three-day weekend
Wayne asked me to go ice skating
I can still ice skate
A warm weekend – it’s in the 30s!
I can make nacho chips from tortillas
I had my office swept
A washer/dryer in my apartment
Five days off in a row
The neighbor put out the garbage
It’s not -50 today
Grandson Shawn (5 y.o.) who has guts. When I tell him, “I’m not going to argue with you,” and he says, “Why not?”
I met another artist today
It’s sunny, even though it’s 30 degrees
I found the perfect shower curtain
My son continues his service to his country
A Phillies game on FSN
The crock-pot Tina gave me
Grandson Wayne (7 y.o.) covering me with a blanket while I’m napping
What are you grateful for?
