Gratitude


Do you ever do the word of the year? I remember picking one last year, but then I forgot what it was. Clearly it worked really well for me. Maybe this year will be different? Whether I remember the word or not, I do need to remember the action.

Gratitude

... Be thankful for what I have in my life instead of focusing on what I don't have.
... Be thankful for the friends and family who support me.
... Write thank you notes, even when they are way, way, way overdue.
... Acknowledge past efforts of those who do things to make my life special and better.
... Let the kids know that every day they make my life better, even when there are lost goggles, spilled cheerios, and early morning interruptions.
... Give thanks to each of you for encouraging me.

Gratitude is a good word for the year.
Do you mind sharing it?

gratitude-we need to keep it at the forefront of our minds as we go thru our days. Grateful for the immense number of blessings we take for granted and remembering others are not so lucky to be born into a culture that supports them as well as our societies, yours and mine, do. It's a great word, Cheryl, I love the choice to keep aware all year.

Great word for the year! Mine is Release. I am grateful for bloggers who share the snippets of their lives along with their quilting talents. It reminds me that we are more the same than we are different. Thank you.
