Today’s Gratitude List – Linkup No. 4

This has been a busy week, and an even busier one is looming ahead. Busy isn’t necessarily bad – particularly when much of the busy-ness involves doing fun things and spending time with friends – but it can get in the way of taking the time to practice gratitude. This post is here to encourage each of us to do just that – stop for a moment, and contemplate our blessings.

(If you’d like a bit of background on why I started the Gratitude Linkup, check out this post.)

  3. Share the Gratitude Linkup with your blog readers by clicking the “get the InLinkz code” link at the end of this post and copy/pasting the appropriate code into your gratitude blog post.
  4. Visit some of the blogs listed in the Gratitude Linkup and comment on their posts.

My Gratitude List

In no particular order, here is my own gratitude list for this moment in time. I hope that after reading it you’ll go on to write and share your own!

  • The affirmation of having one of my posts syndicated on BlogHer.
  • Being part of not one, but two book clubs that choose interesting books and have great discussions.
  • Opportunities to help, to make a difference in someone’s life.
  • Our sweet, bratty, dirty cats who, despite their mischievous ways, bring us so much joy and love.
  • Coffee.
  • Supportive and encouraging internet communities for writers and bloggers.
  • Prescription coverage.

      One I liked a whole lot that we just read for one of the book clubs was “Me Before You” by Jojo Moyes. SO good, and not at all what I expected. I definitely recommend it, and will definitely be reading more by that author! Next month we’re doing “Eleanor & Park” by Rainbow Rowell – I haven’t read it yet, but I’ve heard nothing but good about it. And our other book club just read “A Prayer for Owen Meany” by John Irving, which is one of my favourite books ever, and next month we’re reading “The Light Between Oceans” by M. L. Stedman. I’ve heard great reviews about that one, too, so we’ll see.

    Today I am grateful for extra sleep and self sufficient children and diet coke and a wonderful man who makes sure I’m feeling better after being sick. I love you Dan!

    Wonderful list! ♥ I am grateful my husband has been home with me, my son seems to be feeling a bit better, and for the pumpkins we managed to get for Halloween.
