The Gratitude List

I just read a tweet from a fellow tweeter.  I got the impression she was down in the dumps… she said she felt, “out of sorts.”  I have felt like that many times in my life (I’m sure most people have).   I replied to her tweet and told her to make a gratitude list.

Then I thought, “Darlene!  You’re a genius!  You should make one.”  So I am.  Right here, right now.

I am grateful for:

  • my sobriety
  • my children
  • the ability to use all five of my senses
  • music
  • the gift of writing
  • nature
  • green lights
  • coffee
  • my cats
  • my genes
  • a sunny day
  • a Sunday morning
  • making some one smile
  • a brand new notebook
  • that I was born exactly when I was born
  • Tyler State Park
  • other people’s opinions
  • tolerance….

These are just some of the things I am grateful for.  But, I want to hear from you.  What are you grateful for?  What makes you say thank you.  What helps you through your day?

  3. I thank God for all favors, whether they be big or small ones. That being said, my list would be too long! I always try to give thanks for even the simplest of pleasures…especially green lights! Enjoyed this post – hope it makes everyone think the same.

    • Hey there… thank you so much for sharing what your grateful for.. :) Green lights rule!

      That is awesome that you thank God for the small and large blessings in your life.

      Have a great evening.

  4. Great list. I really, really enjoyed reading it and being reminded to never take anything for granted. And that there a millions of ways to be happy in a day, we just have to keep our eyes open.
    I guess my list would include family, love, laughter, writing, reading and smiling. Thanks again for writing this.

    • Hey AG! Thank you for stopping by :) You are right. There are a million ways to be happy in a day. Happiness is a choice.

      I really like the items on your gratitude list. Laughter.. good one. ;)

      Take care…

      Darlene
