Cultivating a Life of Gratitude

I am committing myself, during 2010, to attempt to cultivate a greater awareness of how much I have to be thankful and grateful for by sharing my daily findings and musings with you. It is my hope that by blogging about gratitude, I will be more aware of what is going on around me in my life, my family, my friends' lives and our world.

Today's moment of gratitude is simple.  I am thankful for the very quick bank teller at Premier Bank this afternoon.  Although depositing money at most banks can be done through a drive-through situation, Premier Bank does not have this option.  So, every week, I make the trek (usually with E in tow) into Walmart to deposit money for our church.  I'm happy to do this but it does take a little bit of extra effort on my behalf and a desire to drag the precious child out of the house in the dead of winter in MN.  So, today, I decided to make a quick stop on my way to teach piano.  I had already safely deposited E-man at my parents home and was keeping my fingers crossed that I would get a teller who would quickly print my receipt because I had literally a 5 minute window before I needed to be back in my car and driving down Lexington.  So - today - I'm thankful for the girl who did my deposit in under one minute.  This probably means I avoided talking with the other women who know me as a 'regular' and I have become friendly with - but it was necessary and I was thankful for someone who did her job so efficiently that it sent me on my way on time and saved me another trip out of the house with E-man.  :)
