Gratitude – 08th April 2016


It is quiet here at work today, which means I got to post on Intimacy.  I know I’m not a counselor, or a specialist, or a psychologist – I’m just a person living life, but blogging for me is quite cathartic.  It has helped so much with my own growth and understanding of where I want to be in life, that even if I am the only one reading this, it has helped me tremendously.

Today, I am grateful for:

  1. Love.
  2. Peace.
  3. Patience.
  4. Kindness.
  5. Family.

“I made cranberry sauce, and when it was done put it into a dark blue bowl for the beautiful contrast.  I was thinking, doing this, about the old ways of gratitude: Indians thanking the deer they’d slain, grace before supper, kneeling before bed.  I was thinking that gratitude is too much absent in our lives now, and we need it back, even if it only takes the form of acknowledging the blue of a bowl against the red of cranberries.” ― Elizabeth Berg, Open House
