Gratitude Journal



Gratitude > Crankiness

3) The Northern Flicker I saw in my cherry tree this morning

4) A clean laundry room with a radio

5) Playing Humoresque on the violin after struggling with rhythm after the refrain

6) Chocolate

7) A woman holding the door open for me

8) Fresh coffee

9) Going to bed early and falling right to sleep

10) A thank you note from a poet in Iraq

11) New Facebook friends

12) Finding new blogs to read by inspiring women

13) Winning a $6 General Mills coupon

14) Knowing that other poets, writers, and artists are following their own path each day. I gain strength from that.
