Gratitude Journal Monday

Seriously, what's up with all the mushrooms in my garden beds? They still make for a great photo.

"Let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think." - (Romans 12:2)
Your eyes are awake today. You are reading this blog. In those simple statements there are at least two declarations of gratitude, maybe even three, or more if you dig a little deeper? I began my Gratitude Journal several months ago and if you'd like to learn more about the details, click here. Maybe you're a devoted reader or maybe you stumbled upon this blog by sheer accident? Either way, you are here, reading this right now, for a reason. Even if you take a moment to merely think about a few reasons to be grateful, you have taken the first step in changing the way you think.
"Becoming the best version of yourself, then, rests on one simple directive: Think great thoughts! People who live great lives are people who habitually think great thoughts. " - John Ortberg from The Me I Want to Be: becoming God's best version of you
86. I am grateful for weekends with no obligations, no place to go, nowhere to be.
87. I am grateful for gentle nudges from above showing me my next steps.
88. I am grateful my son still wants to do silly crafts with me.
89. I am grateful I never threw out the glider from the nursery after it was no longer needed. It may not be a fashionable piece of furniture in the loft but, man, is it comfortable. Nothing beats its smooth, effortless back and forth motions as I type this post.
90. I am grateful for my neighbor's kindness as hubby and I raked the leaves. I borrowed a pretty nifty human-powered leaf sweeper - brilliant design and fun to use.

Are you guilty of 'stinking thinking'?

Clicked over from Michelle's and glad I did. I always enjoy finding new voices in the blogosphere!

Love the mission of your blog "to uplift and inspire".

Looking forward to reading more from you.

Oh, and for the record, I was not paid by Craftsman or anybody to link to the leaf sweeper I used. I only wanted to show you it so you could get an idea of what I was talking about. But, if Craftsman wants to send me some cash, I'm not going to stop them;-)

What a great photo! Reminds me of my childhood in NW Ontario and makes me think of woodland faeries. Lovely shot.

I love the image of woodland fairies!!! Sometimes the camera cooperates quite nicely:-)

Beautiful photo! I stopped by here after finding the comment you left about my guest post on Nifty Thrifty Things. I am your newest follower, and am inspired by your blogs concept of gratitude.
