grateful friday

I had been thinking this would be a good idea & then read Stef's post... maybe it will spread?

I am grateful for having a boy/life partner who blasts old school Liz Phair in the morning and sings along.

I am grateful for the $4 necklace I bought recently at the thrifty antique store with Kate, and wear nearly daily for some bling.

I am grateful for an illustration assignment this weekend for an empowering girls magazine about body image!

I am grateful for my family who I miss on the east coast.

I am grateful for my friends who I scarcely have time to see, but still love me.

I am grateful for my coach who reminded me the other week about the "pms perspective".

I am grateful for my new gym membership and the sauna rooms that I haven't tried yet!

I am grateful at the idea of going to an art show tonight.

I am grateful for deciding to spend the rest of my life with someone and the glimmer of wedding plans.

I am grateful for my daily inspiration of blog reading!

Thank you Mati. I was just feeling so selfishy grumpy and annoyed at things. And I have so much to be grateful for!! This was the perfect reminder...

I have started making "Gratitude Lists" EVERYDAY. I find it is a wonderful way to make sure I don't lose sight of all the positive moments in each day.

I LOVE the collage.

Count me in on this thread with my blog also. I am most grateful for my health and creativity now, at the beginning of my 74th year. Love to all. ~Walk in truth ~ Walk in beauty~
