Today’s Gratitude List – Linkup No. 19

Well, it snowed last night. AGAIN. But even in the midst of my frustration with The Winter That Might Never End, there is cause for gratitude: waking up to find that our neighbour was in the process of shoveling our walk. AGAIN! We need to put some serious thought into a creative way of repaying him for his kindness. Any ideas?

Hope you’ll join me in this week’s Gratitude Linkup!


(If you’d like a bit of background on why I started the Gratitude Linkup, check out this post.)

My Gratitude List

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!

  • Getting an unexpected $50 discount (accumulated Air Miles cash rewards) on our groceries. What a nice surprise that was!
  • Checking my post office box and finding three RAKs (Random Acts of Kindness) – envelopes full of lovely stationery and goodies – sent to me by members of various Filofax-related groups.
  • The unbelievable kindness and generosity exhibited on the RAK groups every single day – complete strangers sharing from their resources to brighten the day of someone they will probably never meet in person.
  • Altruism.
  • Enjoyable books by good writers.
  • The satisfaction and feeling of achievement that comes from finally tackling a long-overdue project.
  • Being invited (via discovery of my blog) to the grand opening of a new restaurant in town, and enjoying an enormous and delicious fajita feast with three friends, all for the cost of a $5.00 (each) donation to a local charity. Best value ever!
  • Looking forward to not one, but two birthday celebrations for two good friends this coming week.
  • My friends. I feel as though I say it nearly every week, but it’s almost impossible to fully convey the depths of gratitude I have for all of the beautiful, diverse, fun, supportive, talented, thoughtful people that have been placed in my life. When I think about how truly and completely blessed I am in the area of friendship, it almost feels like a dream… if it is, I hope I never wake up!
  • Many opportunities for hysterical laughter at the daily antics of our three silly cats.
