A Week of Gratitude

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy;
they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."
Marcel Proust

Thanksgiving Day is this Thursday and I've decided that, rather than celebrate just the day, I would make this a week of gratitude.  So, each day this week I'll post about something for which I am grateful.  On Thanksgiving Day I've asked a Kichaa for which I am very grateful to be a guest blogger.  He lives far away, in a different country and in a different culture.  He'll post about five things for which he is thankful.  I thought it would be wonderful to see how much we differ and yet how much we are the same on Thanksgiving Day.

So, for my first post I have to give thanks for my family (that cute little boy in the picture above is my dad with just a few of my aunts uncles, and my grandma and grandpa).  They have loved me, made me laugh, picked me up when I felt crushed, provided me with opportunities, taught me right from wrong, and made me who I am.   I wouldn't be here without them! 

What are you grateful for today?  Have a lovely Sunday!

  1. A whole week of gratitude? Brilliant idea! Right now, I'm really grateful for a nice apartment and three warm kitties snuggled up around me.
