Thankful Thursday: 30 Days of Gratitude Days 9 to 15

It's time for our second Thankful Thursday, Days 9 through 15 of the 30 days of gratitude! This means, we are half way there, which is hard to believe. Let's get to it.

 

Day 9: Holidays

I’m grateful for holidays and how they cause us to temporarily slow down and spend time with friends and family. They give us cause to decorate, eat, and celebrate.

 

Day 10: Kindness

I’m grateful for simple and random acts of kindness, like a this glass jar of flowers picked from the garden and placed on my desk...just because.

 

Day 11: Friendship

I’m grateful for friends, near and far. I’m grateful for the friendships I have renewed and strengthened this year as a result of social media and how my friends supported me through some sad days.

 

Day 12: Music

I’m grateful for music and its power to uplift and motivate me, especially when I run.

 

Day 13: Time

Time is the currency of our lives. It is the greatest gift of all. This photo captures two slices of time. The photograph is of my two grandmas, my mom's dad, my two uncles, and my mom and dad...oh so long ago. The green bracelet is one my Dad's friend made for all of us, to show support in his fight against cancer. This vignette sits on my dresser and reminds me that time is indeed a precious gift, not to be taken for granted. I am grateful for the gift of time. 

 

Day 14: Creativity

Day 15: Family

I’m grateful for the family I grew up in and everything I learned from them about life, people, and most of all, love.

 

What are you grateful for today?
