Because there are documented benefits to a regular practice of gratitude, I take Tuesdays to pause and give thanks for the many blessings in my life.
- Friends. We had an outstanding time with my Louisville friends Kristi and Keenan. I’ve so missed Kristi! Although it was a whirlwind of a weekend, it was wonderful to reconnect with her, and I am looking forward to seeing her again soon. I am totally down for it not being another two years, though. And it reminds me that there are several people that I am missing terribly. I’ve got to do a better job of staying connected to people. I’ve been trying to call another friend for a couple of weeks now, and despite all of the hecticness of life right now, I need to make a better effort.
- A job. It’s been a rough week, but I have a job when there others who do not, and I am thankful. There are tough times ahead, but they are capable of being overcome.
- Sweet Husband. He is a constant, isn’t he? Because he knows it’s a rough week, today he did the grocery shopping and made me an outstanding dinner. He put up with my crazy friends over the weekend, and he puts up with me on a regular basis. So patient, so kind, so amazing. I’m lucky. So very, very lucky.
How about you? For what are you thankful this week? How are you counting your blessings?
