30 Days of Gratitude to Finish 2020: Day 13

This is the start of our third week of 3 daily gratitudes.  Have you noticed a difference in your experiences and/or attitude?

A work colleague told  me she was thinking of quitting.  When I asked why she explained that since she started doing this with us her life seems to be falling apart—she has experienced several obstacles and disappointments.  We chatted about it and agreed that sometime things have to fall apart before they can come together in a better way (that’s a paraphrase of a quote attributed to Marilyn Monroe).

If you’re experiencing this phenomenon as well, keep going with your gratitudes!  Something better is just up ahead!

Here are my 3 gratitudes for today:

  • A good friend to take a ride with to see all the Christmas and Holiday decorations;
  • The same good friend to meet with to view the Geminids meteor shower tonight (weather permitting);
  • Very grateful for good friends!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

  1. Good friends are definitely a blessing! Enjoy the time together!
    1) Mailing Christmas family gifts!
    2) Watching pro football on tv while wrapping Christmas gifts
    3) Writing out Christmas cards to family and friends to let them know I love them and am thinking of them, even if we can’t be together because of this crazy year

    1. Hi Vanessa!
      Sounds like you’re totally immersed in Christmas preparations. I think you can hire yourself out to Santa as one of his elves! I’m glad you’re having fun! Awww, I’m sure your family and friends frequently count their lucky stars that you are in their lives. Yes, this year has been crazy and it’s been difficult not being able to see family and friends in person. Nothing lasts forever so one of these days we’ll be able to gather with our loved ones. Won’t that be wonderful! Thank you for sharing!
      Your Friend and Pep Pal,


  2. A wonderful afternoon with 6 yr old grandson Brady, baking shape cookies, he taking care of the rolling, cutting, decorating with expert attention!

    Scouting outside with Brady for feathers and mushrooms and pinecones…whatever treasures we could find.: )

    Visiting a favorite old sycamore tree, large and majestic, with bare beautiful gnarly branches revealed.
