|Day two of my gratitude journal. I said that I was thankful for literacy, fresh apples, picked from the tree, shoelaces that stay tied, and the people who read my articles and blogs.
Literacy is the best. I somehow managed to teach myself to read at the age of four. Reading opens doors to other places, times, and worlds. I have found myself transported to very far and wildly wonderful places through the magic of books. The book that I am currently reading is The White Castle, by Orhan Pamuk. It is set in Istanbul, Turkey, in the seventeenth century. How else, except through a book, could I ever go to seventeenth century Turkey?

This is wonderful, Alice! Someone gave me a gratitude once, but I wasn't very good about writing in it. On days that are hard I remind myself that God has gotten me through every day so far, and I start thinking about all the things I have to be grateful for. It is amazing how it can lift my spirits!
Excellent!!! I'm thankful I had the opportunity to know about your gratitude journal at the beginning and to see where it took you. It IS amazing when we just focus, isn't it? There is so much to be thankful if we approach life with a sense of gratitude instead of looking for the negative things.
Nice pumpkin did you grow it. There so much to be Thankful for…All of veggies in our stew came out of our garden.
Coffee is on
Thank you, all, for the comments! I am so grateful for you, too! Alas, I did not grow the pumpkin. My vegetable garden was a dismal failure. Next year, I'll try adding compost and raised rows. The flower garden in front, on the other hand, was wild and wonderfully alive.
