Gratitude hasn't always come easily to me but I now recognise it as something that enhances my every day. It provides me with perspective; it allows me to see what I have instead of getting caught up with what I don't. Practicing gratitude is an integral part of practicing simplicity.
Today I am grateful for:
happy children who are so excited about "Chri-mas holday"
a delicious roast (and the even-better leftovers)
the promise of many mornings at the beach
freshly cut roses
health and energy
an understanding partner
a new book
So: share what you are grateful for; it will put everything into perspective. I look forward to reading...
