30 days


i am once again joining in the celebration of gratitude all november with Joy's group, 30 days of gratitude.
30 days.
1 photo each day.

it was this very group that prompted my  365 days of gratitude 2 years ago.  
i am thankful for the group.  thankful for the simplicity it celebrates.  i am a huge believer in creating your own happiness and finding things to be thankful for each day.  i feel gratitude is learned and reinforced through practice.  by being mindful each day i remind myself that even on my not so good days there is always something to be grateful for.  this simple act is something that rings so very loud in my ears to pass on to my children.  in today's society it is so very easy to become jaded , dissatisfied by what one does have thinking it is never enough or someone always has something better.  this breeds unhappiness.  i want my kids to focus on all they do have, all the little things that mean SO much.

want to join in?
what are you grateful for today?
today i am thankful for the bright sunshine and the sound of my wind chimes swinging on my deck.

I joined this group also because I agree that each day we have something to be thankful for.

I am so excited to join this group this month. What a perfect time -- let go of all the pre-holidays hype and just enjoy what is in the moment!

I love, love, <3 my wind chimes! I still refuse to bat an eye at the 200$ they cost me since they bring me such joy, peace, and calm each time I hear them chime outside of my bedroom window.

I started a 365 days of gratitude thingie 90 days ago, and then many friends joined in, and post their daily gratitude on FB. I am loving it, and learning a lot about myself, and how little it takes to feel contented in life. Felicity
