Gratitude Journal Monday

Gratitude Journal Monday here already? Wow! Wondering what I'm talking about? Click here.

Every so often even I get a good shot. Thank you!
I'm going to let you in on a little secret; a Law of the Universe that cannot be denied. Ready? This will defy Newton's Law. When you give thanks and appreciation for what you already have or for what you already are, the Universe will reward your gratitude by giving you even more than what you sent out there in the first place. It's true! When you begin to notice your blessings all around you, when you stop and are sincerely thankful for what you have right now, your reward awaits you. Now that makes for a very promising Monday.

136. I am grateful for long, lingering weekends balanced with a little work, a little play, and a little laziness.
137. I am grateful for the ability to hear. I watched a PBS show where everyone was using sign language to communicate and the communication was verbally overdubbed. I found it frustrating to watch the signing be out of sync with the verbal overdubbing.
138. I am grateful for the strength and guidance I get from above. I just wish I was a better listener.
139. I am grateful for all the newspapers dropped off by my gal pal's husband; it was one less thing to worry about when creating the paper mached crocodile head.
140. I am grateful for the creativity gifted to me at times when I really need it. I know I'm not that good on my own - all the glory be to Him.

I remember a time when I was very low after losing my Dad...I received a letter from a friends Mum and I have never ever forgotten it - she said about taking time to notice the little things around me - to appreciate them - the smell of freshly mown grass - the birds that tweeted in the trees all around me - it didnt make things better overnight but it stayed with me and when I was at my lowest I did what she said and looked around me and smiled.

Thanks for sharing the law of the universe. I'll have to give thanks more often. I love that you always find time to do so!

After admiring your Gratitude Mondays for several months, I'm finally going to bite the bullet and start my own! Don't know if I'll blog it or not, but will definitely find one thing at the end of every day to ponder gratefully on. Thanks for the idea!!!
