I am taking UL’s prompts for this set of gratitude posts. Thank you UL for creating and sharing.
Nov. 18 – What is your favorite family activity that you did recently? Drooling over cakes and confectionery! For the past few weekends, as a family we have been hooked to the reality baking show, Sugar Rush, on Netflix. The creativity that goes into the making of the cakes is simply mind blowing. Come Saturday evening, the four of us are glued to the show with dinner plates in our hands, teaming up to root for our favorite teams, and making grand baking plans which seldom materialize. Gratitude for the moments of togetherness with my favorite people.
Nov. 19 – What book are you grateful for reading? All the board books and chapter books that my children and I have read together.. The Good Night Gorilla, The Belly Button, Green Eggs and Ham, and so many of them. We read at all times (at breakfast, at bedtime, after school, before school bus) and everywhere (home, school, airports, doctor office, why even movie halls..!) Gratitude to a lifetime of bonding that was built over the foundation of these books.
Nov 20 – What modern convenience are YOU most grateful for? So many things to choose from. My thank you for today goes to online shopping. No need to sit in traffic, drive around to find a parking spot, and interact with other grumpy shoppers. I am happy to shop at the click of a button from the convenience of my warm and toasty house. That too gets delegated to the better half a lot of times. Doesn’t get any easier than this, does it?
Nov 21 – What spiritual gifts are you grateful for? Anything that connects you to you is spirituality, right? The spiritual gifts that I am grateful for is the freedom that come from paying attention to the breath, the stillness of nature, the opportunity to know myself through my dance, and teachers who resonate and influence (Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra). Deep gratitude to these spiritual gifts that add the most important dimension to my life that I would not have known otherwise.
