thankfulness

5 Mar

Last week I had coffee with a friend and during our conversation we started talking about thankfulness.  She was telling me how important it is to remember what we are thankful for and how she tries to write down at least one thing she is thankful for every day.  I think this is the most wonderful idea! This is something I do every year at around Thanksgiving and as cheesy as it may sound, it is always very helpful and meaningful for me.  And I think it is important that I reflect on what I am thankful year around rather than just once a year. 

My goal is to keep a notebook and write in it at least one thing I am thankful for every day.  Lately, my anxiety has been higher than usual as Jonathan and I go through this stressful time waiting to find out about our future.  I find myself worrying about the future all the time and meanwhile, I am letting my life pass me by!  I want to enjoy every minute I have left in Spokane.  I want to remind myself of all the wonderful things in my life past, present and future!  Here’s to thankfulness!

Today I am thankful for fresh flowers and my wonderful husband.

What are you thankful for?
