Lockdown Graditude

Kathy and I have been talking about gratitude a lot lately. Not just talking about it but practicing it. These are scary, uncertain times. One thing that helps to keep me grounded are gratitude lists.

There are many ways to make a gratitude list. Kathy recently shared about one method on her YouTube Channel. Gratitude lists can be done mentally like I do first thing in the morning. They can be written in many different ways. Today, on this post I am doing a pictorial gratitude list. I’m going to share pictures of 10 things that I am grateful for. They are in no particular order.

1. I can’t imagine doing this alone! I am grateful for our marriage and all the ways we are blessed to be together!
2. I am grateful for our extended family and that everyone is safe and healthy.

3. I am grateful for all the wonderful friends we have made while traveling. I’m grateful that we check in on one another even during lockdown.
4. I’m grateful for my best friend, Lecia, and for all the ways we support one another.
5. I’m grateful for the gift of motherhood and for my 3 amazing sons!
6. Being a grandma is awesome! I’m really grateful for my 4 grandchildren!
7. I’m grateful for my mom. Even though she is no longer with us, I’m forever grateful for her!

8. I’m super grateful for technology, like my phone (https://amzn.to/2wGqMHC) our computers, television, etc. They really help to keep my connected, informed and busy.
9. I’m grateful for the abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables and that I can walk to this local market.
10. I’m grateful for our rooftop pool and for my sweet neighbor. I’m grateful that I can be her substitute grandma while she is far from her home.
What are you grateful for? I love doing these challenges. Maybe they can help get you started.
