Gratitudes

A while back I decided to make a "Week in the Life" album. The album is not completed, but I wanted to share my favorite part of the experience: every day for a week I recorded three gratitudes. Most were small things, but it really helped to boost my outlook and put my life in perspective. Here's the list for the week:

Kings Island season passes
A beautiful day!
auto brew on my coffee maker
Monday afternoon naps
quiet time in the car
hand sanitizer
the kids being in a good mood when they woke up
Morgan was able to get her H1N1 vaccine through her school
I was chosen for a guest spot on a stamp design team
kids got dressed for school without nagging
a good night's sleep
eating dinner at the table as a family
my supervisor is pleased with a newsletter article I wrote
shopping for the baby shower I'm planning is finished
McDonald's Coke!
Justin took the kids to school this morning
our babysitter
an easy day at work
kids at my dad's for the night
seeing out of town relatives
Pumpkin Spice lattes

Give it a try for a few days and see how you feel!  If you post about this, send me a link and let me know. Tis the season for Thanksgiving!

  1. I'm telling you it's the small things. We all need to take time to acknowledge the good things that surround us every day.

  2. This is a great list! I'm actually enjoying my longer commute, but it's not particularly quiet - I'm currently listening to the latest Stephanie Plum novel & periodically I laugh like a crazy woman - these books are so funny.

    I'm going to try to reconnect with my creative side. I think Stamp Camp has helped jump start me. We'll see how it goes!

  3. McDonald's cokes a ARE the best! That was my big craving when I was pregnant with the twins! I would even send Bill out at odd hours or have him come home on his lunch break when I was no longer allowed to drive to bring them to me! :D

  4. What a great idea!! Something about fountain sodas really make me happy.

    It is the small things that we overlook, but they are oh so important.

    Great post
