Today's Gratitude List - Linkup No. 12

4 years ago

Happy Gratitude Sunday! This was my first week back to work after a nice long break and, as the first item on today's gratitude list, I'm happy to say that it was sane and productive and I made it out the other end in one piece. :)

Hope you'll join me in this week's Gratitude Linkup!


(If you'd like a bit of background on why I started the Gratitude Linkup, check out this post.)

My Gratitude List

In no particular order, here is my own gratitude list for this moment in time. I hope that after reading it you'll go on to write and share your own!

  • Being the recipients of a random act of kindness - having our walks shoveled by our neighbour and his kids.
  • My job, and how perfectly it fits my needs.
  • The soothing warmth of Arnicare on a sore back.
  • Validation.
  • Possibly the silliest, most frivolous gratitude item yet, but... this week I discovered Pilot FriXion erasable pens and erasable highlighters, and they are AMAZING! I'm grateful for the ability to use lovely coloured pens and still correct any mistakes I might make - even with the highlighters! :)
  • The end of the deep freeze and a return to warmer weather.
  • Open mic live music that brings back memories.
  • Engrossing conversations with good friends that last until the café closes.
  • Having another blog post featured on BlogHer!
  • Receiving my new Fitbit Force (combination Christmas and birthday gift from Peter) and gearing up for some personal fitness challenges.
  • Dinner and a movie with a good friend.
