Friends who pass on furniture, because we now have a single bed for when the grandkids stay. It started out as Tiarne’s bed, then it was Conner’s and now ours. I’ve given it a beach-wash white paint job and with a mattress and doona it will be ready for the spare room/office.
Day 36 I am grateful for:
Being able to live near beautiful Currumbin Creek, because today I enjoyed reading a book, lying on the sand, swimming in the warm crystal clear water and taking in the breathtaking scenery (see photo above). When I looked up I could see the trail of a jet as it streamed above me, cutting a path in the cyan-blue sky.
Day 37 I am grateful for:
Last night gloriously colourful sunset, because it’s like the sky had been painted and the half-moon rose from the east so day could turn to night.
Did you see that sunset? What are you grateful for today?
A pinch and punch for the first day of the month, or so the saying goes. January has already gone and February (the shortest month of the year) is here. We’re still enduring a heat wave. I’ve got gratitude for air conditioning (thought that’s not my gratitude quote). I love hot summer days, so there’s nothing to complain about (as long as hot flashes don’t coincide with the heat).
I’m hitting some writing targets and moving forward with ‘The Zanzibar Moon’. The fact that January went so quickly, has made me realise that if I don’t stick to a schedule I could run out of time. There’s another reason for 365 Days of Gratitude. It keeps reminding me of other things that are important to my happiness. Day 32 didn’t go to plan and we had a couple of minor hiccups, but I found looking on the bright side really does get you through. Why not try it yourself when things aren’t going so great?
Day 32 I am grateful for:
My wonderful in-laws Col and Grace, because they are always there when we need them with unconditional love and support. I am so lucky that I have a caring husband who has come from a family like mine, with similar values.
Day 33 I am grateful for:
Getting up early enough to get some writing done before I go to work, because writing makes me happy.
Did something go wrong with your day? How can you turn it around? What are you grateful for today?
