When Gratitude is a Verb ~Accountability

If you read my posts about my daily choices you know that today I planned to write a gratitude list with 100 things for which I am grateful. 

It started out a little rough. I got up and looked outside and it was snowing. I am truly tired of snow. Then my thoughts went to my list – I need to be thankful for many things if I am going to make it to 100. I guess that means I need to find new perspectives. 

Then the thought came that if I was really grateful for something it would motivate me and I would do something in a grateful manner.  Those are the first two shifts I had first thing this morning.

  1. I am grateful for the snow. We have been in a terrible drought and people have been praying for water.  This snow is an answer to prayer.  

  2. I am grateful for those who are praying for well being of all.

  3. I am grateful for the many people I know who are more selfless than selfish.

  4. I am grateful for my neighbors. While we are a small community, we take good care of each other. 

  5. I am grateful, that against the advice of everyone I know, learned to operate the track hoe. (It is so much better than shoveling people out by hand.)

  6. I am grateful that we kept the track hoe.

  7. I am grateful that I got to push that snow today.

  8. I am grateful it came first circle and I am paying attention now.

  9. I am grateful for a comment Carol made today. She mentioned that I have nice neighbors. I really do and I should be truly grateful for that and do more for them. I am blessed.

  10. I am grateful that I have the pleasure of taking care of my family. I have become a kinder and more realistic person.

Now can I turn everything I am thankful for into an action that will make others have the opportunity to feel gratitude as well. It’s a warm and comforting feeling and I need to express it more often.
