Daily Gratitude

Many life coaches recommend that people start gratitude journals, a place to list things that they're thankful for. Increased gratitude has been linked to increased happiness and success.

Christians have known this for a long time. Our girls already are in the habit of finding things to give thanks for in their nightly prayers. I don't need to keep a gratitude journal, but I will share my latest source of gratitude...

I'm thankful for mousetraps.

I'm even more thankful for a husband who will empty them.

Hope your day is full of things to be thankful for!


  1. This is something we're consciously trying to practice and teach B especially lately when whining is the first reaction.

    I'm thankful for the same as you, and today, for shortcuts and quick-responding cross walk signals that reduce walking time outside.

  2. Well, the girls are good at ID'ing things they're thankful for (new slippers, books, etc.), yet it doesn't exactly prevent whining.

    I too was thankful for quick-acting crosswalks today, and close-by parking!
