In my recent blog post, November: Bring in the Blessings, I dedicated the month of November to the word gratitude. To continue honoring that dedication I thought I would share some of the things I am most grateful for in life, because they do not get the appreciation they truly deserve!
The list is endless with all the things I am so very grateful for in my life, but here are just a few of my favorites:
First up on my gratitude list is friends. I am a firm believer that we do not need a long list of friends to feel happy and satisfied in life. Therefore, I am grateful for the few friends I have in life. Even though the list may be short, those are the people who love me for me, flaws and all and that is hard to come by in life. But I am lucky to have found my people!
Sunrises; they are simple, but yet so beautiful and honest. There is something so heart warming when seeing a awe-inspiring sun rise in the morning. They signify a new day, a new beginning and there is something pure and beautiful in their simplicity, and I am so grateful to be able to experience them!
For anyone who knows me well, you’ll get this next one! Blankets! Yes, I am so so so grateful to have blankets in my life. As someone who is constantly freezing, blanket are a necessity and without them life would be chilly!
This next item kind of contradicts my previous, but it’s an important one! Ice Cream! If you’re looking for a way to win Becca’s heart, it’s ice cream! I love ice cream and I am super grateful to have this delicious special treat!
These are just a few of the many things I am grateful for in my life. I could go on and on! Often times I think we look at gratitude and associated it with the necessities and big things in life; money, houses, cars, but sometimes it’s the little things in life which make our hearts happy. Like family hugs, cards from friends or maybe blankets and ice cream.
Life has so many wonderful things to offer, but it is up to us to open our eyes and see them.
What are you grateful for in your life?
