Yeah, I totally made that word up. But the idea behind it is something I'm planning to do each week. Working on the 'glass half full' mindset that I'm striving for I'm actively looking for the little things in my life that I'm grateful for, thankful for or otherwise just plain happy about. Of course some of them are big things. Huge even. But the little things tend to get lost in the day-do-day bits of living. My Tuesday posts are going to be short - a photo or two and a few words about whatever I'm feeling grateful for that week. If you want to join in on your blog leave a note in the comments and I'll come check it out. Or, if you're not a blogger, just leave a comment saying what you're grateful for.
Gratituesday - Week 1
I love that, despite the expensive presents they received, the electronic gadgets and games they own and their never-ending wishlists for more STUFF, both the kids have spent literally hours playing with these inexpensive plastic hula hoops that Santa left for them. Tonight they spent an hour after dinner laughing their heads off and I couldn't resist grabbing the camera to snap some quick shots.
