I am grateful for a sunny day off of work because it gives me time for much needed rest.

I am grateful that my mom and I share a birthday because it’s something we can always share no matter how much life changes. 

I am grateful for a small bottle of CoCo Channel perfume that my mom gifted me years ago which I only use for special occasions because it makes the whole day feel special. 

I am grateful for these gorgeous trees in the town I live in. Like really… aren’t they just magical?

I began a gratitude practice over the last two weeks where I write three things I am grateful for each day. It has only been about 14 days, but what blows me away is the shift from feeling disconnected and tired to open and awake. I thought that I would start recording them here in an effort to spread gratitude and maybe find some connections. Here goes nothing:

I am grateful for the swirling clouds and the sparrows that spread their wings against the sky full of swirling clouds.

I am grateful to look across the room and see my Love reading a book because although we are not talking, the presents of him here is strong and comforting.

I am grateful for time to write today. I wrote 1,500 words messy words that are like a ball of tangled yarn, but they are out of my head and on to the page.
