Simple Things

After reading and re-reading ‘Simple Abundance’ some years back, I started sporadically keeping a ‘Gratitude Journal’ on my nightstand.

Every night before turning off the lamp, I write 5 things I’m grateful for that day. It’s like a pop-quiz at the end of the day.

I find myself grateful things as simple as the waking up to the heady smell of wet earth on a rainy day and knowing it’s Saturday and I can just lie in bed and enjoy it, yet wanting to get up anyway and be out in the midst of it.

Nothing is as fragrant as wet earth, no memory of childhood as vibrant as walking in nature rain or shine on my face.
