Day 38 to 46 of 365 Days of Gratitude

Day 38 to 46 of 365 Days of Gratitude

I’ve missed days of writing the 365 Days of Gratitude. It’s not because I didn’t find any gratefulness, it’s because I’m writing other things (and thinking, scratching my head and searching the web). After a bit of procrastination my muse is back.

The writing included two writing competitions, two articles and the start of a new manuscript. In between that I managed to get through a few more chapters of the novel I am reading. It’s the historical novel by Australian author Mary-Rose MacCollIn Falling Snow‘. I’m towards the end of it and can’t wait to see what happens.

Oh, and I also finished a little flip book I’d created of some of these gratitude quotes (plus more). It’s a colourful little book to cheer you up or help you regain gratitude or motivation. It’s yours to read free.

Part One
Part One

Day 38 I am grateful for:

Mahli my dog, because she always has unbound joy when I return home (even if I’ve only ducked out the door to check the mail). Like doesn’t she remember that I was in the house a minute ago?

Day 39 I am grateful for:

It’s hump day, because Wednesdays are the middle of the week and we’re closer to a weekend.

Day 40 I am grateful for:

For the gecko clicking and chirping in my awning, because he/she reminds me that we share our homes with more than just people.

Day 41 I am grateful for:

Rest and recuperation, because I only have a tummy bug (nothing major), so I’m grateful for my overall health.

Day 42 I am grateful for:

My husband’s patience and kindness, because he showed our friend how to vacuum her pool with great humour and warmth.

Day 43 I am grateful for:

A small pool in a heat wave, because we missed the pools we’ve had and getting wet on a 38 degree day was all that mattered.

Day 44 I am grateful for:

The moon in a morning sky, because I could see it (waning gibbous) as I drove north-west and everything feels good when I can see the moon (I am the star-sign Cancer after all).

Day 45 I am grateful for:

My brain never giving up, because I had to reconfigure one computer to another which had crashed (ask me if I could have done this four years ago and I would have said, “No.”)

Day 46 I am grateful for:

A sleep in, because it wasn’t expected (like when you hit snooze and just shut your eyes and wake up two hours later) and I must have needed it, plus I had some pleasant dreams.

Did you enjoy nice dreams? Are you following through on them?
