“Plenty of people miss their share of happiness, not because they never found it, but because they didn’t stop to enjoy it”. W. Feather
I love the idea of this “thankful” tree. Such an easy and inexpensive DIY project for fall. A little over a week ago, I started keeping a gratitude journal, listing things that I was grateful each night. I’ve done this exercise before but I’ve never suck with it consistantly and it is definitely a good reminder that what you focus on, grows. It’s lovely to live your life through a lens where you are continuely looking for wonderful things all around you.
It’s also interesting to see what shows up when I just write down whatever comes to mind…
This was Day 7, in my 30 days of gratitude journal.
I’m grateful for…
1. The dishwasher repair man who hugs my daughter’s doll because she asks him to.
2. “I’m sorry, Mama” No words more precious have ever been spoken.
3. A newly opened cashier line, just as I’m ready to check out.
4. The sound of mail being dropped in the mail box.
Just a easy way to remind ourselves that there is so much to love and be grateful for and who couldn’t use a little more of that in their lives??
