Entry from my Gratitude Journal

This is what I wrote in my Gratitude Journal this morning:

I'm thankful for . . .

a beautiful fall morning.

the changing leaves glowing in the early morning sunshine.

powdered sugar snow on top of the Wellsville mountains.

sunlight streaming through the (clean) dining room window and falling across the hardwood floor.

Bean's description of what Annie was 'full of' this morning -- sugar and caffeine.

having a husband who cherishes the gospel as I do and is dedicated to the same ideals that I am.

a new morning 'treat' -- raspberry/milk sorbet.

having a deep freeze full of food -- raspberries, corn, peppers, meats, jam and other items.

the hymn lyrics, "All is safely gathtered in, Ere the winter storms begin." (It's a good feeling too.)

watching our woodpile grow -- thanks in part to a son who enjoys splitting wood.

a dryer full of Italian plums.

losing six pounds since the end of August.

improved health and wellness.

Gratitude is such mindset wouldn't you say? I loved hearing your list. It helped me think of some of my own. I wish I had all that frozen produce in my freezer! I loved those white raspberries you gave me last year. You are quite the gal....

And what a gift gratitude itself is, too! Another "thing" to be thankful for.
