December 16, 2016 Well, this is a gorgeous time of year. It rained a lot today. I love the rain. I love the cold weather that the month of December brings. I feel blessed, I have challenges on my mind as well. As a woman, I always wonder why "they" say men love a challenge. Me, I think I kind of like things to go smoothly and easily, but I'll be the first to admit that throwing a challenge in the mix can stir me into action. These days, I want to focus on feeling grateful. I love having a feeling of gratitude, because it is better than feeling ungrateful, and therefore not feeling like anything is enough, not enjoying what you are blessed with. Recently I read a quote somewhere that said something like: what if, when you woke up tomorrow, you only had ownership of the things that you were grateful for today. I don't remember the exact words, but it was something like that. I thought that was very clever, whoever thought that up. Makes one think, doesn't it? That being said, I think I shall start a gratitude journal as well.
