My 3 gratitudes for today are;

  • I am grateful for the insights about myself I had in my morning meditation.
  • I’m grateful for a favorite podcast that I’ve followed for several years with a host that I greatly respect (sad, though, that he’s decided to close the podcast and try other formats);
  • I’m grateful for a warm house on a chilly day.

30 Days of Gratitude to Finish 2020: Day 17

My 3 gratitudes for today are;

  • With 10+ inches of snow overnight—and more still coming down—I am grateful I can work from home today (I send thoughts of safety and protection to those who must go out to work outside their homes today);
  • Very grateful that loved ones, family, and friends are all okay in this storm;
  • I’m very grateful to know that neighbors are at the ready to help a beloved family member as needed since I am snowed in today and can’t get there.  Thank you!!!
  • Bonus gratitude:  I’ve said this before but once again I am very grateful for all the people who stand ready to jump in and help, whether they know you or not and whether they’ll ever see you again or not.  They don’t expect anything in turn.  They help because they can.  Thank you so very much.  I am so very grateful.  Thank you.

My 3 gratitudes for today are;

  • Beginning the day in the silence of the very early morning—as if someone has hit the “pause” button on the world;
  • The majesty of the stars twinkling in the sill black sky before the sun begins rising;
  • Ending the day in the silence of the snow falling in the night.

We’re just about half way through the month and our 30 Days of Gratitude.  How is it going for you?  Are you discovering that as you are grateful for 3 little things, that you notice yourself being grateful for other things throughout your day?  I hope so!

Here are my 3 gratitudes for today:

  • Wonderfully grateful for a beautiful sunny day today, especially since we’re supposed to get a good old fashioned Nor’easter tomorrow into the next day;
  • Delightfully grateful for my dear musically gifted friend who led a Zoom Holiday singalong that was terrifically fun;
  • Enthusiastically grateful that I picked up 8 Christmas movies from the library.  WooHoo!

What are you grateful for today?  Please share your 3 gratitudes in the comments below.  Thank you!

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!
