Gratitude Week: Thursday

This week I am joining Michelle’s annual Gratitude Week 2015.

Today Michelle asks:

Think about the routines and rhythms of your life right now. Can you feel contentment/appreciation/joy for those routines? (this isn’t always easy, I know) See what kind of silver linings you can find today. If joy feels too big/too hard/too much, can you look instead for a bit of ease, a mere sliver of contentment? That’s good too. Celebrate that.

The biggest routine for me, right now, is work. My commute is an hour long, so I am up really early. This time of year it is still dark. Though it is difficult to climb out of my warm, cozy bed, I love the early morning quiet, and watching the world wake up.  How the daylight slowly arrives…like a big stretch after a good night’s sleep.

Today I am grateful for:

  • a cozy, warm bed to sleep in;
  • my quiet, gentle start to the day;
  • a job to go to; and
  • a hot cup of coffee before I start my work day

What are you grateful for today?

Until next time, Connie 🙂


I am living my dream life in the country! I love photography, travelling, cooking, baking and I even try my hand at quilting.

  1. Connie, I am really enjoying your posts this week, especially how you are able to see the silver lining in having to wake up early. My husband also has a long commute and often has said that he enjoys how quiet the morning is while the world is still asleep. xx
