Week 5: List What You Are Grateful For
This list is always long, and always feels incomplete or insufficient because so, so much in my life is so very good (even when I can't really see it).
- I LIVE ALONE NOW!!!
- I can afford my rent
- I have a stable, well-paying job that allows me some flexibility
- I have the time and energy to keep my home cleaner
- I have space to keep my books
- Catholic bloggers
- my knitting friends
- I have a reliable car
- extra babysitting jobs
- Vlogbrothers videos
- my Catholic faith
- counting my sisters among my closest friends
- still having health insurance and affordable healthcare
- music, art, literature, and dancing - and growing up with parents who exposed their children to culture and the arts
- my large, crazy, beautiful extended family
- mini-vacations to Salem, OR
- the opportunity to travel so much when I was younger
- living in a world where there are Christmases
- living in a world where books are so accessible (and becoming more and more accessible to more and more people!)
So there's my list! It is, of course, far from complete. I feel like it's pretty obvious that I'm grateful for the roof over my head and the fact that I know how to read and was educated and live in the 21st century with all its conveniences and modern medicine and on and on and on. I wanted this list to be really specific and pared down a little, if that makes sense.
What are you grateful for? What specific blessings can you not imagine living without? Let me know in comments or with a list of your own!
Happy Monday, brave ones....
