Gratitude...

"It's the classic dream story of finding something unexpected in your attic that'd been gathering dust for decades."  Or something like that...

MaryJane's Gratitude Journal
I kept a Gratitude Journal from 2005 to 2007.  I found it in the dusty depths.  I'm glad it has been resurrected.  It was so nice reflecting on the things I was grateful for during those 2 years.  I thought I would share some of my entries...

  • crazy laughing fits with Mike
  • Barb's birthday at Johnny Bistro's
  • baby Jake
  • peanut butter and bananas
  • Woodpecker!
  • the most loving parents in the world
  • Nature's pallette
  • Armanda's expecting!
  • Seeing Paul and meeting Joey!
  • the purple sunset
  • ROLO ice cream
  • Lady Jane
  • living in Canada
  • manicures and pedicures
  • Aerosmith coming to town
  • income tax refunds
  • garlic
  • a doe and her fawn
  • my magnificence (that was Mike's entry on May 5'07)
  • breezes
  • the generosity of friends
  • Nancy & Sean are expecting
Excerpt
Gratitude:  the quality or feeling of being grateful or thankful

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
John F. Kennedy


I've decided to start journalling again...
