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.

Our church is talking about spiritual disciplines this week.  We were challenged to put one into practice.  In my small group we decided on silence.  I am anything but silent ... and I like to have 'background noise' on in the house while I'm home most of the day.  One of my favorite radio stations is MyTalk 107.1 fm.  I listen to it during the day often and when I'm driving (especially by myself to and from piano lessons) a lot. To create more silence in my life and I am giving up 107.1 for the next (GULP) month.  Tonight I drove home in silence.  It was good.  I'm working on being grateful for it but I think I at least have an appreciation for the silence.
