Let's get the gratitude juices flowing!

GRATITUDE - warmly or deeply appreciative of kindness or benefits received; very thankful. [Gratitude Week begins here. Click for this week's Bliss Initiatives.]

Ankida - an ancient sumerian word that means "where heaven and earth join"

OK itis time to get those gratitude juices flowing!

I am grateful for the magic light which can be seen, it turns out in the morning  as beautifully as early evening, as the sun just approaches the horizon.

I am grateful for the gentle snores of my husband and child.

I am grateful for the smell of fresh coffee.

I am grateful for time by myself.

I am grateful I do very well on little sleep.

I shared these things before and I enjoy the fact they continue to give me such pleasure. The simplest things in life really are what make a heart sing.

Let the world know what you are grateful for today in this fun linky (feel free to link your grateful posts or a list of the things that speak to your heart today) or in a comment!

  1. I have so much to be thankful for right now! The biggest being that The Hubbums got a job and is now teaching happily! That makes my heart happy. (On another note - I wanted to let you know that your posts are showing up in Google reader VERY delayed - I just got your 'banned from Twitter' post today - that's odd. Just thought you would want to know!) (Oh...and that post was funny! LOL!)

  • 10. CLEANLINESS - Tolerate no uncleanliness in body, cloaths or habitation.
  • 11. TRANQUILITY - Be not disturbed at trifles, or at accidents common or unavoidable.
