As I write this post, I feel relaxed and at peace.
A 45-minute early morning walk, joined only by a self-shadow, opened up space to reflect on what has been GIFTED in this season of my life.
This is the first in a series of planned monthly posts for 2017, where I express GRATITUDE for the GOOD in my life, which I failed to acknowledge and appreciate for far too many years.
Gratitude Journal – March 2017
Thus far this month, I have been abundantly gifted with the GOOD and I am, especially GRATEFUL for:
- FaceTime with my 8-year-old granddaughter. This is our special time to talk, laugh, listen share and bond. Despite being physically separated by more than 2,000 miles for the past seven years, FaceTime keeps us connected face-to-face for the entire year.
- Dining Room Table which was an unused piece of furniture in our home for more than seven years. When the youngest daughter relocated to Florida last summer she: (1) purchased the house next door; (2) moved from an on-site business office to an off-site home office; and (3) decided our dining room was the perfect workplace because there were too many distractions in her home. So glad she made this decision for my days are happier and brighter when I walk by the Dining Room Table and know THIS IS WHERE SHE SITS.
- Healing Garden and it has been my nurturing place for more than five years. It is now the learning, sharing, healing, working and bonding place that I, happily, share with the eldest granddaughter.

A lovely idea to journal once a month about the things we forget to give thanks for. You should share this at the Senior Salon today.

Lovely post to begin a great idea for a monthly series. Thanks so much for sharing – and I hope you will continue to post these positive posts on the Senior Salon to remind us all to go take a look and think about the elements in our own lives for which we can be grateful.

Welcome to the Senior Salon and thank you for taking the time to write a gratitude journal and to share it. It’s a lovely idea. Your FaceTime with your grand-daughter really made me stop and remember how good it is to have easy communication when one is far away. something to be thankful for indeed.
