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.

.8 miles

Today I am thankful for something very simple but something which I often don't think twice about ...

The distance from Super Target to my house is .8 miles or 4 minutes.  It's definitely walkable when the sidewalks are clear and the grocery run isn't too large.  I've even mastered the art of ONLY going for groceries which took some practice when we first moved so close.  

Who knows how long we'll live here, but while we do, I'm going to try reminding myself to be grateful for the "I really don't think twice if I have to run to the store in the middle of making something" distance more often.  What a blessing!


  1. I'm jealous! Sounds wonderful to have the Mothership so close. :)
