While shopping the other day I came across a little Journal that simply says "Gratitude" on the front cover. Inside is the following quote:
"I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder" - G.K. Chesterton
The rest of the book is for jotting down thing things a person is grateful for, with occasional quotes here and there throughout.
I found myself buying this little book and feeling inspired. What better way to start a new year than to find a way to focus on the positive.
So I will start every day by writing a few things I'm grateful for in my little journal. On every Monday I will blog here a post titled "Gratitude" and I will list no less than three things I am grateful for.
Today I am grateful for:
- A husband who doesn't mind me driving 80+ miles to pay twice what I expected for two rabbits.
- A father-in-law who always smiles and really seems to enjoy working on my kitchen.
- A daughter who helps her younger siblings without being asked, even when she doesn't feel well.
What are you grateful for today?
