I've recently been presented with many messages of gratitude. I've been thinking about how I should spend 5 minutes everyday in pure gratitude. Even in adversity, there is much to be thankful for. I think that if I start looking at the world by giving thanks, my perspective will change.
I am thankful for my son. He is such a joy. I love that he talks to his toys and talks when he sees us having a conversation. I love that he laughs when I blow on his stomach or snort his face. Even when he is sad or upset, I am so thankful that HE is my son.
I am thankful for my writing and for having a place where I can go to write.
I am thankful for all of the contractors who have helped build our home. I am thankful that this happened during a recession so that we can get home sooner.
I am grateful for my body. Even though it hasn't been feeling so good, I am thankful to have it to continue this experience. I am committed to taking care of it, and I am grateful for my body's healing abilities.
