Thalia skipped into the kitchen. “Do you know it’s World Gratitude Day?”
Nia swallowed her first sip of coffee. “It’s also National Miniature Golf Day, Pecan Cookie Day, and… Escapology Day?”
“I’m grateful for the fourleg, who reminds us daily to embrace life with a spirit of fun and adventure!” said Cal. “Isn’t it funny… How she’s collecting fallen hickory nuts from the driveway as if they are jewels?”
“LOVE YOU HENNY!” Thalia called from her seat at the table. “… And then the goof secretly carries her golden nuggets to the family room carpet for safe keeping. Does she think she’s a squirrel?”
Words from Typist:
The first person who comes to mind when I hear the word GRATITUDE is my friend Chris Palmore from Gratitudespace.
He dedicates his life to making lives better… by inspiring us to shift our focus from lack to abundance. I’m ever so grateful for his invitation to contribute stories to his books Dear Gratitude and Dear 2020. Stepping out with his encouragement built the confidence I needed to publish books of my own. Thanks Chris!
This morning the cedar tree outside my kitchen window is aflutter with a flock of cedar waxwings. Quite a sight!
I am filled with gratitude for life… even the tricky bits.
I bet you are, too!
If you care to share in comments, we’d love to hear about something you are thankful for!
