Love Thursday...

This month is about love. My best friend Kristen is marrying the woman of her dreams this weekend. My grandfather is turning 100 years old next week. My nieces are almost a year old. I am surrounded by wonderful showings of love a
nd it took a few things to remind me of that this week.

While visiting a friend who is also going through a hard time, we pulled some runes from the
Healing Runes. It's a wonderful set of stone runes in a green velvet bag and there is something truly magical about it. You ask for what you need, a question, a prayer and reach into the depths of the bag, feeling the runes run through your fingers and wait for one to claim you. Well, the one that claimed me this week was GRATITUDE. The book explains that sometimes in order to get through a hard time we need to review the things in our life that we are grateful for to remind ourselves how rich we are. It was a good reminder of how lucky I am and of how many things I have in my life to be grateful for.

So, in order to have a visual reminder everyday I created a gratitude list. I intend to update it as often as I think of it. But here's my start...

What I'm Grateful For:

  • My nieces
  • Friends
  • My Camera
  • People Who Love Me
  • Shelter
  • Fall in New England
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Kids in Halloween Costumes
  • Cool Crisp Air in the Fall
  • My Kittycat
  • Opportunities to be Creative
  • A Walk in the Woods
  • My Granpa Jake (100!)
