30 Days of Gratitude to Finish 2020: Day 19

Copyright 2020 Artisans Workshop Designs

My 3 gratitudes for today are;

  • A lovely morning landscape to start the day with beauty;
  • The gift from a co-worker of a  new insulated mug that keeps my tea nice and hot;
  • Watching old favorite Christmas movies this weekend:  Christmas in Connecticut, It Happened on 5th Avenue, The Shop Around the Corner, It’s a Wonderful Life, How the Grinch Stole Christmas (animated), Miracle on 34th Street, and of course several of the various A Christmas Carol movies.

What are your 3 gratitudes for today—are any related to the Holiday Season, the upcoming solstice, or the wintertime?  Feel free to share them in the comments below.  Thank you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

  1. I’m grateful for:
    —Reconnecting with my 90 year old uncle who sent me some slides from my childhood. He’s doing well in Florida, sharp as a tack!
    — The delectable scent of pumpkin bread loaves baking in the oven, which I will give as gifts.
    — The many solstice/holiday concerts being offered online this weekend-A wonderful way to connect with the spirit of the holidays!

    1. Hi Julie,
      Thank you for sharing your gratitudes.
      Oooh! So very nice to reconnect with your uncle. So wonderful that he’s doing well. How delightful that he shared pictures from your childhood. I’m sure it brought back many fond and warm memories.
      Yes, this time of year is so exciting with all the various ways different cultures and religions celebrate this winter season. Instead of focusing on the cold and dark, we become excited about sharing the warmth of loved ones and friends. We’re also excited for the northern hemisphere’s return to light that is signaled by the solstice.
      The ways we celebrate fill me with awe because they are links not only to our near ancestors but also to our far distant ancestors who sat around open fires praying, singing, and chanting. It’s very interesting to see remnants of our ancient ancestors’ celebrations in the traditions of today.
      Thank you for sharing your gratitudes!
      Your Friend and Pep Pal,
