this weekend, i had coffee/lunch with some friends at wendals in fort langley which happens not only to be a cafe but a bookstore as well. there was this little leather bound journal with the title "gratitude journal" inscribed on the front and i just wanted to buy it so badly. alyssa and i joked about loving journals but not writing in them. she mentioned that i blog and that's really like a journal.
i follow a blog called "a journey to a simple happy life" that always has a sunday post called gratitude sunday. the author lists a few simple things that she was thankful for that week. when i logged into reader tonight and read the weekly list of gratitude, i thought of the gratitude journal and this blog journal and was inspired to begin my own weekly segment.
and so...this week i am thankful for:
> both sets of ben's grandparents who make cranky evenings happier
> my sister-in-law's progress and successes at RCMP training in regina
> a phone message from a favourite friend
> the fort-to-fort trail in fort langley and good friends to walk for 2 hours with
> words of advice
> new inspiration to begin counting ww points again
> a good book to read before bed
what are you thankful for this week?
