After reading about this on Carole's blog, I realized it would be good for my soul to share my thankfulness.
- I'm thankful for a peaceful mind. I've had monkey mind a lot this fall, and yesterday I stayed home sick with a headache. I spent the time thinking, writing, and creating, and I sent that monkey packing.
- I'm thankful for my job. I'm fortunate to do something I enjoy. I get worked up about grading papers, but that comes from wanting to make a difference to my students' writing and worrying that my feedback won't be adequate. I work with 18-22 year olds who make me laugh, give me hope, frustrate me at times, but ultimately make the job a blast. Every day is different at my job, which suits my easily-bored mind perfectly.
- I'm thankful for November. Today it is chilly and rainy. I enjoy the sunshine and warmth of summer, but the hunker-down weather is vital to recharge, too.
How about you? Right now, as you read this, what is making your heart sing with gratitude?
