I am reading Simple Abundance. the author recommends writing five things you are grateful for every night before you go to bed.
1. My kids
2. My parents
3. My siblings
4. My friends
She suggests pointing out specific things each day, such as noticing a beautiful flower
Finding things to be grateful for:
There is a dove nesting in my potted plant.
I watered the dust off my garden plants.
I skyped with my mom.
I had coffee on the beach this morning.
I did some painting today, abstract.


  1. Pretty out of the park too SR, can't wait to see your paintings. The ideas of writing down what I am grateful for is really good, thank you.
    1. I am grateful for Ken
    2. I am grateful for my family
    3. I am grateful for my friends they love me and like having me around (as do 1 and 2).
    4. I am grateful for bird and animals.
    5. I am grateful for the tide, they keep going, in and out, they can be trusted.

    Love you

  2. Sounds like a good book to read. I am grateful for:
    My Family
    My Dogs
    My Friends
    My Cottage Soon To Be Home where I am closer to Mother Nature for Whom I am also grateful.

    I comment to myself most mornings while I am on my 1 1/2 to 2 hour trek to work. Mostly I comment on the music I am listening to and beautiful nature around me as I go. I am very blessed. Love, Dakota
