gratitude-a-thon day 623: gratitude shorts

When you wake up to a blue sky (double points if that sky is at the beach). When you bump into someone you haven’t seen in a long time. That first sip of coffee. The way your daughter looks when she sleeps. When you hit the bed after a loooooooong day. When you have a really, really good laugh that starts in your stomach and makes its way to your bladder. When your garden is happy. Cherries.

A surprise phone call. A compliment. A sale at your most favorite store. When you help someone and it makes you feel better than it makes them. When you see a smaller number on the scale. When someone else grocery shops. An old picture that throws you right back into a happy second of time. When the birds chirping at 4 am stop. A farmer’s market.

When you find a gift card you’d clear forgotten about. When your office is clean. When your team wins. When your son calls. When your husband brings flowers. When you do a good job and someone notices. When you do a good job and nobody notices. A good deed. Any beach, anywhere, any time.

When you get that eight glasses of water in (and go to the bathroom all day). When your friend falls in love. When you give your dog a treat. When you decide it’s going to be a good day, and it is.
