Focus On Life Week 4 ~ Word(s)

I just want to say thank you for all the kind and thoughtful comments left on last week's FOL blog post.  I so appreciated every one of them!

This week we are focusing on words.  Sally asks, what word speaks to you, makes you laugh, makes you feel good about your being and who you are in that moment.  Is there a word that stands out, you find interesting, you think is fun to say.


The words thankful and grateful keep popping up for me.  For the last several weeks, every time I turnaround, those words or variations of the words show up somewhere.  Quotes on Pinterest and Facebook, gratitude journals at the bookstore, noticing other people saying thank you more often than I did before.  It is all just affirmation for me that I'm on the right track of being more thankful and making a list of One thousand gifts.
What are you thankful for?

  2. What a lovely post! I keep a gratitude journal where I record 5 things I'm grateful for each day... some days it's 10+, others it's barely 2, but I record them anyway :)

  3. It is amazing when we begin to pay attention how much is out there that we did not notice before. And noticing the thanks and gratefulness out there is heartening.

  4. Love the clouds in the background of your words! And yes we all need to be my grateful for things.. although I have a hard time being grateful for the snow and cold we've had this winter!
