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.

Have you heard them?

I have!

Yesterday and today - I heard birds singing.

In Minnesota this is a big deal.

I have also seen snow melting and pavement.

The sun feels warm.

Do you remember the last time you actually felt the sun?

I appreciate the signs of Spring that exist in Minnesota today ... they make my soul smile.

I am grateful to understand the concept of hope even more thanks to MN winters and springs ...


  1. Nice! I'm happy for you guys. I was talking to Mom yesterday and she seemed relieved that MN is moving out of the 'deep freeze' phase of winter. You should buy some tulips or daffodils to keep inside the house too!

  2. I heard some birds singing yesterday too!

    Just a few more months and your Mom will have to change her Face book picture.
