Gratitude Spiral: Day 113

Today, I’m grateful for the first blossoms on the forsythia.

It catches me by surprise every year. And with snow in the forecast for today, it promises spring on the other side. 🙂

Gratitude Spiral: Day 112

Today, I’m grateful for all the little necessities that make a house a home.

I’ve got food and water. I’ve got clothes and blankets and a furnace to keep me warm. I’ve got a phone and a computer to keep in touch with family. I’ve got music to listen to, books to read, a to-do list to add to and subtract from. And my health, today. 🙂

Today, I’m grateful for all the supermarket employees who go to work each day to keep the supply chain running. They do their jobs despite being met with mob mentality and irrational hoarders in this difficult time. I’m grateful for their daily dedication.

Today, I’m grateful for the internet.

In spite of our overuse and abuse of it at times, I’m grateful for the way it connects us, keeps us within reach of each other, and helps us combat isolation. Let’s use it well during these difficult days. 🙂

Today, I’m grateful for the return of the red-winged blackbirds. They are a true sign of spring for me.

I wish I had a picture to share with you, but I don’t. You should check out Mike’s & Christy’s blog, nature has no boss.

Gratitude Spiral: Day 108

Today, I’m grateful for simplicity.

When the busy-ness of life gets blind-sided by a global pandemic, the simple things take on more importance and we allow ourselves to pause and appreciate them.

Be safe and be well. 🙂

Gratitude Spiral: Day 107

Today, I’m grateful for the precautions being taken all around me to minimize/slow the spread of this new coronavirus.

Meetings and outings have been cancelled or postponed. Airlines are waiving fees. Hotels are accepting cancellations. Towns are restricting activities. And, more importantly, people are learning how to wash their hands! 😉

Gratitude Spiral: Day 106

Today, I’m grateful for singing harmony with friends.

There’s something about adding a harmony to a beautifully sung melody that lifts my spirit to a higher plane. It’s like living inside the music for a moment in time. And I’m grateful for the experience.

Today, I’m grateful for hand sanitizer.

In the face of a global outbreak of a new virus, it’s a small comfort to have a bottle of hand sanitizer on hand (pun unintended) while accompanying my mother to catch her flight at the airport yesterday.

Gratitude Spiral: Day 104

Today, I’m grateful for neighbors who drop by for tea.

Good neighbors are a blessing. They’ll lend a tool, help with a project, or maybe water your garden while you’re away. Or sometimes, they’ll just drop by for a cup of tea. 🙂
