This week, it’s the simple things I’m thankful for.

Quotes on Gratitude

“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” — Thornton Wilder

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” — Albert Einstein

“Can you see the holiness in those things you take for granted–a paved road or a washing machine? If you concentrate on finding what is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.” — Rabbi Harold Kushner

Gratitude List for the week ending June 26

  1. A lifeguard named Mitch, who saw Jay fall off the child platform during swimming lessons and jumped in to pull him out of the water.  I could use this one as the whole list really.  I’ve been thanking him in my head every hour of every day this week.
  2. A great run with Rocky yesterday morning
  3. Finishing one good book and starting another
  4. Glacier ice cream
  5. Afternoon snoozes after mornings at the pool
  6. Fun with friends Friday – the kids played, we went to lunch and then saw Toy Story 3.  The moms got to talk for more than five minutes without interruption.
  7. Playing in the pool with friends
  8. Mom’s flank steak dinner
  9. Scoring tickets to a live event with Eckhart Tolle
  10. Last night, Jay fell asleep, all in his own, immediately.

What are you grateful for this week?
