It's been awhile since I have done one of these although my offline gratitude practice remains on point.
In no particular order, here are the things I am grateful for today:
1. The blooming flowers. I removed a gazillion weeds from the beds around the new house & the flowers that remain, are starting to bloom. They add some much needed joy. Also, I potted a couple of miniature rose bushes that Chris gifted me for Mother's Day from my children & they are growing so well.
2. Lillie: the shih-tzu who loves everyone of us without ceasing . She never fails to meet each of us at the door when we come home from work & demands snuggles when we are sitting anywhere. Recently learned is that she loves the outside. Her favorite place, besides someone's lap, is a chair on the screened porch in the sunshine where she can keep an eye on the world (and the birds & squirrels)
3. Random compliments.
4. Time to read. The last half of last year & first half of this year were busy & I feel like I didn't really get to read much of anything besides work documents. I've made it for this month though, averaging about a book every day & a half.
5. An upcoming break. 5 glorious days to do what I want when I want without having to set an alarm clock. Friday can not get here fast enough.
