Five minutes. Set a timer. Write down anything that pops into your head for which you are truly thankful. Ready? Go!
I’m thankful for:
the lovely colors of fall trees
delicious coffee flavored with Irish Creme
greek yogurt with granola
daffodils and other spring flowers
having my family all in one place, sleeping under one roof, eating together, watching a movie together
home with heat, water, plumbing, beds, fridge (well you get the idea)
people who love me
blog world friends and readers
family near and far
community of faith: people who pray and believe in prayer and GRACE
beauty in nature — EVERYWHERE
silk fabric 🙂
safety: we don’t live in fear
Time is up!
Gratefulness is a mindset and it takes a little practice if you aren’t used to thinking that way.
I challenge you to give this a try. I’d be interested to see YOUR five minutes thanks list.
Update: One of my friends did the Five Minute Thanks on her blog— http://sometimesthereisbeauty.blogspot.com/2013/11/in-month-of-thankfulness.html?showComment=1384107334519#c4263334782541607012
