Gratitude Journal Day 23

Today I am grateful for:

  1. waking up next to my puppies. Have I mentioned I love my dogs?
  2. waking up in footie pajamas. That’s always a fun way to start the day.
  3. my dad taking me shopping.
  4. my dad being patient while I perused through Target. It’s like the Bermuda Triangle in there!
  5. going out to sushi with my dad after our fun-filled shopping spree (or at least I thought it was fun… it was probably torture for him haha)
  6. my great-aunt and uncle. They leave for Maui in the morning and I said goodbye to them tonight. I won’t see them for a couple of months, but I am so grateful to have them in my life.
  7. falling asleep to Pocahontas on ABC Family. I love it when Disney movies are on cable!

Gratitude Journal Day 19

Today I am grateful for:

  1. patience. My dad went last-minute Christmas shopping with me today and I know he was wearing his “most patient hat” the entire time.
  2. open-mindedness. I went to not one, but two church services this morning. Keep in mind I never go to church and I’m not the biggest fan of it. The last time I attended was last Christmas Eve. However, I actually enjoyed the second service simply because I kept an open mind.
  3. my cousins. We went to lunch with them today after church. I love spending time with them. They’re always so positive and upbeat. And their children are probably the most adorable kids I’ve ever laid my eyes on…bonus!
  4. open-mindedness (again). It deserves to be said twice because I was quite open-minded today. Today, my mom and I adopted two kitties. One of them is the kitten I posted a picture of in yesterday’s gratitude journal entry. I hate cats. I can probably count on one hand the cats I’ve come across and liked in my lifetime. And now I share a home with two of them. We named them Tika and Teddy and I’m actually growing very fond of both of them. I’m keeping an open mind and learning to love the two newest members of our family.
  5. my great-aunt and uncle. Not only have they graciously opened their home to me over winter break, but they’re just all-around amazing. They’re both so funny and caring and I feel so loved whenever I’m around them.
  6. falling asleep snuggled up next to animals. I’m currently tucked in bed with two kittens purring between my legs. It’s not quite comparable to snuggling with my puppies, but I’ll take it.

Gratitude Journal Day 15

Today I am grateful for:

  1. the durability of my Macbook. It fell off of my lap and onto the floor while I was sleeping, and there’s not even a scratch on it! I love aluminum! 
  2. my car. The back seats fold down (making it like a mini truck) and I can drive my dogs around in it. Keep in mind I have two huge labs and it’s a VW bug. haha
  3. Target’s dollar section. oh how I love 50 cent gift bags!
  4. seeing my mom for the first time in weeks.
  5. finding the perfect pair of rain boots for only $35 dollars at Target! Talk about a steal!
  6. making homemade guacamole and rice crispy treats with my dad.
  7. White Christmas on AMC. I love this song.

I’ve been naughty…

on the boat during our sightseeing tour of the Hudson River

I have been a very bad blogger. I haven’t posted a gratitude journal entry in a week. Hopefully you can forgive me. But I do have a pretty good excuse if I do say so myself. I’ve been on vacation … Continue reading

Gratitude Journal Day 7

Today I am grateful for:

  1. getting to drop off my cousins at school and have a little heart-to-heart with them on the way.
  2. the hummingbird that came right up to the glass of a window I was looking through. I swear the universe is trying to tell me something sometimes.
  3. my sweet puppies, who always bring a smile to my face. We spent most of the day together at the dog park and the groomers.
  4. my amazing dad who fronted a BUNCH of money to make sure my tuition was paid on time and I could fix my class schedule for next quarter.
  5. my best friend, who always makes me laugh, even when I’m feeling stressed and upset.
  6. a great late-night talk with some amazing women in my life. (hence the late-night post)
