feb 7: a practice of gratitude

I am reading a really wonderful book right now that is helping to remind me that I need to stay in the present and enjoy every moment. It is incredibly calming to tell myself to take a deep breath and look around at what I have right now, in this instant, and why it makes me so happy. As I lay in bed this morning, during those precious quiet moments before my daughter gets up and my husband leaves for work, I was thinking about how beneficial it would be to make myself record occasionally these things that bring me gratitude in my daily life. 

I’ve seen a lot on other blogs about posting a single image once a week or a collection of thankfulness each week. And I think it is a lovely idea.

I guess this is my sort of version. And I am starting right now, in this moment. Three things that make me happy, thankful, and wholesome.
