My gratitude journal rests on my nightstand next to my Kindle. I don’t write in it every night before I lay me down to sleep, more like two or three times a week, though I verbally acknowledge my gratitude nightly. That’s part of my “stop-to-start” sleep ritual – or how I transition for a good night’s sleep after a hectic day.
I am thankful for all the blessings in my life AND for the blessings disguised as challenges.
I am thankful for my health and wellbeing, my family and friends, and for the gifts bestowed upon me.
If you are reading this, I am thankful for you. I believe in six-degrees of separation and feel certain we have a connection. Blessings to you!
