Gratefulness — a way to center your being into a mindset of enlightenment and joy.
I am grateful for a husband that puts up with my shenanigans and busy-ness of life! He just keeps loving me!
I am grateful to be able to drive home and give two most beautiful, kind, caring daughters a hug and tell them how much I love and appreciate them. I wish all little girls were as loved as mine.
I am grateful for essential oils... my body is being supported one drop at a time.
My gratefulness comes from the support from all the teachers I work with who stay positive despite some tough-in-the-trenches teaching on a daily basis. Despite voters once again not approving an override and the district trying to operate on a budget set in the 1980's, we as teachers keep plugging along and try to provide the happiness and learning the students in our district need and deserve. And, I am grateful no one admonished me for wearing jeans during my morning of rebellion instead of handing in my resignation letter.
I am grateful I grew up with a twin sister! We understand each other inexplicably.
I am grateful that I don't have to drive west on the US 60 early every morning for work.
I am grateful for a most amazing mom and dad! Thank you for always helping us out when we needed it— unconditionally and unfettered.
I am grateful to spend some time with an awesome cousin and family! We rocked the ghost town today!
I am grateful for a wonderful mother-in-law and father-in-law who welcomed me into the family many years ago with love.
I am grateful for the surprise gift of a gift card from Walmart. Thank you, Walmart for supporting teachers!
I am grateful that I can afford a red cup of whatever I want to drink at Starbucks. I wish all of our veterans could say the same!
I am grateful for my older and younger sisters. They have overcome and achieved much in life! Love you, P and Tut!
I am grateful to be a brand new great auntie today! May her new life be blessed in all ways.
I am grateful for all that I have. It is enough and more!
I am grateful for the small moments in the day that make me laugh out loud amidst craziness.
I am grateful that I have surrounded myself with beautiful people whose hearts are kind and words are honestly spoken.
I am grateful I always have food in my cupboards. I've had a tough week of food allergy reactions, but I do not have any reason to complain for there are so many who are spending nights and days not eating at all. That I have enough food, even though it might give me an allergic reaction, is a true blessing.
I am grateful for the time I get to spend with the girls and D. Life is zooming by and everyone is so busy. It's nice to slow down and relax a bit.
I am grateful for big cat snuggles. Life just seems great with a cat close by.
I am grateful for the helpers in this world— those whose lights shine and bring a ray of hope to others in need.
I am extremely grateful for my patience and that my heart is strong enough to withstand a diamond sword! (I had a misbehaving student trying to kill my heart with an imaginary diamond sword today... my life in the classroom some days is quite interesting).
I am grateful for pistachio ice cream, Epsom salt essential oil baths, and a husband's killer back rubs! I enjoyed all of these after a short (chaotic) 3 days of teaching- including the day I was being attacked by an imaginary diamond sword. Sigh...
I am grateful for the lessons I learned growing up that help me be the person I am today.
I am grateful to gift beautiful, intuitive readings to others.
I may add some more to this list as November is not quite over and there may be some things I want to add as the year continues to unfold. The list will never be complete as gratitude for the small things is ongoing and incredibly big!
