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 MacColl ‘In 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.
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.
