gratitude: week 1


This holiday season is filled with fun activities to get everyone into the holiday spirit. I for one am taking part (with a good friend and cousin) in giving thanks to the many things we overlook and take for granted in our lives. We found this list on Positively Present; it was meant to be a thirty day challenge for Thanksgiving but I wanted to extend it a bit to go through the entire holiday season. We are doing five instagram photos each week and submitting them to each other, either as we go or in a lump weekly sum.

I’m loving every minute of this task. It makes you look at your world in a different light. Appreciating the little things. Like this week when I was taking the ‘morning sky’ photo on my way to an appointment. I was thankful to be awake so early, wishing that I was a morning person but grateful I was able to get out of bed, shower, kiss my husband, have coffee already brewing (husband’s doing), eat oatmeal goodness, drive to an appointment, and then drive to a job I love for a full day of active patients and activity. I hope you too stop and give thanks. What a fun season to do so.
