Gratitude in Motion: October’s First Half

To hold myself accountable, I post two gratitude reviews in a month sharing the little blessings that come my way. I’m careless at times, what can I say. 

My hope is gratitude in motion will snowball around the world implementing changes for a more peaceful and loving world.

In the first half of October, I am…

Grateful for convenient modern life like: nail clippers – smooth writing pens – clear hand soap – earth colored tile flooring – gel ink pens – lotion infused tissues – heavy-duty garbage bag liners – recycled scratch paper –firewood…

    I can totally imagine writing down notes of the things that you are thankful for to you day to day life. A very great and endearing attitude. Time for me to buy XXL clothes to wear as blanket at night. 😀 Thanks for the idea.
