Thank you for being unexpected and wild; exhausting and exhilarating.
Thank you for hot days and tank tops and burgers on the grill and cold drinks on the patio.
Thank you for the rain that falls and filters the air, making the whole world crisp and blue and green.
Thank you for a gentle breeze, the blowing leaves, and for soft grass under my feet.
Thank you for the little faces, the tiny toes, and small hands I get to hold.
Thank you for the smiles, the laughter, the loud voices I hear all around me. Thank you for the joy.
Thank you for the disappointments followed by the better thing I didn't know was there waiting.
Thank you for the slowing down, the intentional choice, the purposeful yes.
Dear life, thank you for the adventure.
One of my favorite blogs, So Many Places, chronicles the journey of a gal who quit her day job to pursue a dream. Go check it out and read Kim's story. She recently wrote a post called Dear Life in which she thanks life for its many blessings. My post today is joining in on her pursuit of gratitude. I hope it becomes a habit! Will you join in too?
