Today’s Gratitude List + February 2015 Gratitude Linkup

Did you know that today – February 15th – is National Flag of Canada Day? And that this year – 2015 – just happens to mark the 50th anniversary of the inauguration of Canada’s flag? It seems like an appropriate opportunity for me to highlight my beautiful country, and put everything I am privileged to have and experience as a Canadian citizen at the very top of my gratitude list.

Canada Flag

In no particular order, here is my own gratitude list for this moment in time. I hope that after reading it you’ll go on to write and share your own!

  • Peter’s willingness to go out to the store several times throughout this past week, in spite of being just as sick as I was, to pick up the things we needed to get us through.
  • Feeling better enough to go back to work for two days and get (mostly) caught up.
  • Working from home.
  • A warm house that keeps us safe from extreme cold winter temperatures.
  • Hot tea.
  • Good books.
  • Uninterrupted sleep.
  • Having laundry facilities in our own home.
  • A generous friend going out of her way to drop off several bags of magazines for me to use in art journaling.
  • Knowing that even when I have to miss or say no to events, nothing changes between me and my friends – they’re still there for me, and they still care, and there will always be next time.

Now it’s your turn!
