Dear Gratitude Journal :

With wind and fire a constant now, I’m grateful for Twitter alerts. I’m grateful to have a lazy weekend. Not my regular routine, but a nice change. And, I’m grateful for my espresso machine. Between that and the plug-in car, I’d be hard pressed to say which one is the greater money saver.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful for webinars. I’ve attended a bunch this year. It’s considerably easier than being there IRL, and I’m considerably more informed. I’m grateful I love to create order out of chaos. And, I’m grateful that supermarkets sell individual servings of cake.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful for the karma that brought me to California. Never have I regretted my decision to live here. I’m grateful for a few days away from the computer and from work. I enjoy my profession, but sometimes I just need it to stop. And, I’m grateful for on-line recipes and recipe books. I don’t follow them very often (like most people) but, like vacation brochures, they’re just nice to browse.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful for the truth. It does set you free, even if that means you fall flat on your face. I’m grateful that perception is always subjective. I’ve come to accept that sliver in my eye affects my vision. I need to remind myself that others have that sliver in their eye as well. And, I’m grateful that I’ve failed so many times that I no longer fear it. Life is a roulette table. Your number will come up.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful for debit cards. Cash is such a hassle, and I can’t do math in my head, so I would be one of those people who would need to put stuff stuff back, which is annoying and embarrassing. I’m grateful the baby boom generation is retiring. And, I’m grateful I took my lunch hour to do chores and some cleaning. Nothing makes you feel better than the faint smell of PineSol in your kitchen.

The end

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful that I cleaned my garage and threw a whole bunch of stuff out. I’ve always been tidy and a good throw-er-out-er, but I’ve been doing more culling lately. It seems the less I have, the better and more focused I feel. I’m grateful that we’ve all become much, much better at virtual work and webinars. Now that we have so many people using this technology, it will improve quickly and meaningfully. And, I’m grateful I have all the toilet paper I need.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful to all the hard working and honest people who worked at the polls, counted votes, and certified elections. Bureaucrats are underappreciated, underpaid, and often abused by politicians and constituents alike, but they are the what makes our democracy work. I’m grateful for sneakers. And I’m grateful for a few days off. A much needed time to reflect.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

Never have I been more grateful for my health, and the good health of my loved ones. I’m grateful for the tradition of Christmas lights. The last few weeks before solstice are dark and dreary; the lights are cheerful, and each decoration – no matter how small – shows the creativity and warmth of its creator. Better days are ahead — the sun will return. Lastly, I – and many in this great nation – are grateful for portable space heaters.

The end.

Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful for Reiki and my Reiki master. I feel clearer and more focused today. I’m grateful for my winter daisies. They are such a resilient and cheerful flower. And, I’m grateful for Brussel sprouts. Never thought I’d say that.

The end.
