I first came across this idea as Project Gratitude through a fellow blogger, Writing Ruth. I had looked for a way to cherish and acknowledge some things in each day that I appreciate. So much of what I feel in a day rushes through me and I am often left overwhelmed. This list is my daily reminder of what those little aspects are, and how each day has worth. I am thankful for what I have and where I am, but it’s easy to be complacent or to feel ‘not good enough.’ By being more focused on the little bits that make up my bigger picture, I hope to share more peace with my day. I will archive my daily reminders and post them at month’s end.

2. that the cat is feeling better — that my daughter was able to be out with friends — going for a run and feeling the wind in my lungs — naps on the couch.
3. feeling sore after my run and realizing that I was working hard — that the work day went quickly — internet distractions — take-out dinner — consistency.
4. that I could drive my daughter to school — having time for a coffee date with my husband — working out carpool issues — seeing how in Fall, almost all the leaves are turned over.
