gratitude

YOU are on my gratitude list every day, but today you’re featured in the top spot… because if it wasn’t for YOU, I would never have bothered with a blog and would have instead kept my writing to myself.

It’s said that we don’t appreciate what we have until it’s gone… that we have a tendency to take for granted that which is valuable in our lives and then, when for whatever reason it is no longer a part of our experience, we gain a sudden and deep appreciation for its meaning and worth.

gratitude

The first item on today’s gratitude list is a rather silly one, I’ll admit – but I’m going to share it anyway. I’m grateful that I was able to leave the house yesterday in my Converse – instead of boots – for the first time in, quite literally, MONTHS!

We loved seeing them every few days as they walked in the square outside our office window.
