Prayer, time outside in nature.
Yesterday, I desperately needed groceries and on-line ordering and pickup is delayed until next Wednesday, so I made a homemade face mask out of a bandana and headed to the grocery store…..something I NEVER thought I’d be doing!
The importance of being together with friends and loved ones. I feel like I’ve taken this for granted. I seem to be more appreciative of the little things, I find myself having the time to notice things that I otherwise would be too busy to see.
The bright blue sky, green grass and sunshine as I tend to my flower beds.
Living gratefully has made me more appreciate of life’s ups and has taught me that everything that happens has a purpose. There is so much to learn during difficult times and if I search with a grateful heart my perspective can change.
My family. This soon to be empty nester is enjoying time with my husband and two sons. With all that is happening in the world I am ever so grateful to have this time together.
The end of Covid-19.
My family and my relationship with God.
It has made me appreciate so much more, even the difficult and not so good times. I look at things and people in a more positive light.
Morning sun rises and evening sunsets are my most favorite part of the day. Whenever we travel I make it a point to find beautiful places to view both. Watching brings me peace and a sense of wonder. Love my early morning runs as the sun rises I feel so much energy. I have also been know on beautiful evening to join my son on our roof to enjoy beautiful sunsets.
My husband, sons, extended family and friends. My health and the health of my family. My dogs. My home. Our jobs. The Sun.
Brother David, although I do not personally know him, this site and the teachings of gratitude have changed me in so many ways.
My Aunt, who is also my Godmother. She has had a lot of health issues this past year and just had surgery to remove some cancer. She lives several states away so I have been calling her once and texting her several times a day since her surgery to keep her spirits up while she is recovering.
Many people are offering to help those who need to stay at home by getting their groceries, medications etc. I also see several people offering their services, virtual cooking and fitness classes, recipes, coloring pages for free. My neighborhood did a “Bear Hunt” for the children to find on walks (we all put bears in our windows). This week we put together a virtual scavenger hunt through our development.
I truly feel at home when I am with my family, immediate and extended. My husbands job has required our family of 4 to relocate often so I made a point a long time ago to make our home, no matter where, a place where we all find solace, feel love and comfort. I also feel most at home when I am in nature, bare feet with the sun shining down on me calms me
Orange….making my spirits so bright, you fill me with energy and positivity.
I have signed on to be a helper, available to deliver food, medicine and necessities to the elderly or those unable to get out. I am also helping our school district distribute food to families in need. In doing all of this I am being very aware of my need to social distance, keep my hands washed etc.
My clients and co-workers.
Compassion and love. Honoring that by showing compassion and love.
To let go of judgement and criticism, to be more accepting and patient. Being mindful and grateful for the people and things I have in my life. To aware of the needs of others as well as our planet, being a good listener.
