Project Gratitude

This is a project that my dear friend and Sister of my Heart is doing over at Memoirs of a Voodoo Beach Bunny after being inspired herself by Ruth at Writing Ruth.

Each month, I will update this page with things for which I am grateful.  I would like to say that I will do this on a daily basis, however, I do admit that life does – sometimes – get away from me.  With that being said, I will strive to update once a week – perhaps on Sunday – from the paper gratitude journal I have.  (It is my goal/desire to get better at writing in it on a daily basis.)

At the end of the month, I will wipe this slate clean, share my points of gratitude in a blog post, which will be archived for posterity.  I, then, shall begin anew at the beginning of the next.

2/2013 – This month, I will also begin incorporating Small Stones into this page…

Quiet settles upon the air
Currents slow, no longer hasten
All to remain
After the chaos of the morn
Is the hum of a fan.

Gone are the voices
So dear, yet blaring
Replaced by the scuffle of paws in play.

Peace and longing co-mingle
Dancing together in stilled moments
Until the bus returns
By end of day.

~ A Mental Mystic, 2013

♥ Quiet after the storm of chaos that can (sometimes) be my kids as the erupt into the morning ♥ My kids and their (sometimes) unabashed exuberance ♥ My furbabies (puppies) and their exuberant greeting of a new day ♥ Coffee.  Especially the first cup in the morning. ♥ The internet and my ability to connect with SO MANY people, some of differing perspectives, every day. ♥ My hubby…  Well, for everything about him.  The unpleasant, as well as the pleasant.  All of it helps me in becoming the person I desire to be. ♥ The beautiful view of nature I have as I sit gazing out the window. ♥ The skill of typing without looking at the keys. *winks* ♥ The beautiful morning that is dawning brightly in our neck of the woods. ♥ The warmth and smell of the wood furnace that Hubby got going for the season. ♥ The means to pay the (rather hefty) electric bill we received before getting the aforementioned wood furnace going for the season. ♥ The knowledge that spring is almost here. ♥ Knowing that we’ll be able to start our gardens soon! ♥ Knowing that we’ll continue to receive Hubby’s active duty pay for another month and a half. ♥ Inspiration ♥ Knowing that God/Spirit/The Universe always takes care of me and always has. (All good things are coming my way.) ♥

    • You are most welcome! And, again, thank YOU! I’ll be updating later today. Once I can get to my journal and NOT wake up Dh in the process. 😉
