My First Gratituesday

Over at Marianne's blog, I'd noticed that she does this cool thing called Gratituesday...and since one of my goals for 2011 was to write down daily what I was thankful for, I had to get on this wagon.  I admit...I have - once again - been terrible at hitting this goal so I'm going to slightly revise it midstream.  Instead of writing down daily what I'm thankful for, I'm going to do it weekly because I think I can stick to that.  So, I'm gonna steal Marianne's idea (yes, yes...I asked permission first!) and today is my first kick at the Gratituesday can.

So...what am I thankful for this week?  Well...given all the stuff that's been happening in Japan this past week and that I live in an earthquake zone, this one is easy:

 - I'm thankful that I'm alive

Yup, that's it.  Every day that I watch the news coverage, I thank my lucky stars that I'm still here.

Life is the best thing to be grateful for, isn't it?

there is a Gratitude app for the iPhone that i just started using. Not always great at remembering... but you can post to it and rate your day and even add a pic. Once you finish your post you get a inspirational quote. Anything we can do to help us to remember to be grateful is a good thing!
