As an avid reader I am constantly learning and inspired by the words of others.
Everything I‘ve read about living a more fulfilled life suggests we take time each day to acknowledge the things we are thankful for.
Today I set out to write a blog starting a gratitude list but after re-reading the blogs I’ve already written it dawned on me that I began my gratitude journal when I started blogging last year.
So before I move forward I want to acknowledge the things I am grateful for that I have already shared with fellow bloggers in the blogs that I have written.
I am truly grateful for ….
The courage to believe in myself
The ability to read and write
Having hope and making new beginnings
The joy of being married for 25 years to my loving husband and for the family we have created
The love and joy my rescue dog “Gracie Dee” has brought to my life
The pleasure of reading novels
Having a lifelong best friend
The safe return of my precious daughters after traveling
Having opportunities to travel
Finding the courage to reclaim my name
Fond childhood memories
Getting back up after stumbling
Letting go of past hurts and regrets
Having the courage to ask for help
The kindness of people willing to offer helpful advice
The eternal love of my mother
Having access to technology
