Day 7 – He had me at “Meow”.

8 Jan

If you started with me 7 days ago, then you’ve got 35 Self Inspired reasons to celebrate your life today ~ And do you notice yourself seeking out the blessings? Do already feel a shift in your perspective? Do you find you’re more in tune to the good in your life?

I’ve been journaling since I was a child (I still remember my mother buying me my first diary at drugstore called Sprouse Ritz on Ocean Ave, in Laguna when I was about 7 or 8 years old. It had a small lock, 2 golden keys, and Holly Hobby on the front). As an adult, my diary grew into a Gratitude Journal; I know firsthand the power of our own thoughts, words and attention. We really do write our own story—some cards are dealt to us (that’s life) but most of it, we choose, and whether it’s dealt, or chosen, the lens you see it through, is up to you.

And if you’re just joining in, then welcome! You’re right on time.

What are you grateful for today?


Blessings for Today, Day 7

1. Saturdays. I love Saturdays.

2. The things that kids say:

7 yr old Sprout- “Mom, I need to sell some of my toys.”

Me- “Why would you want to sell some of your toys”

7 yr old Sprout- “Well, some are for babies, and besides, I could use the money.”

Me- “What do you need money for?”

7 yr old Sprout- “I’m saving for a vacation. You can come with me if you want to.”

I’m still unsure where we’re headed.

3. Shirley Temples with extra cherries

4. The cat next door. (I miss my cat—I’m so grateful that the fur-guy next door is such a love, with his one eye, and his crooked tail—he had me at “Meow”.)

5. Hot-rollers. Today was my second attempt. I couldn’t go out anywhere afterwards, but I think I’m getting better at it, and practice makes perfect.

Thank God.


Tell me, tell me…what are you grateful for today?

    My blessing is to spend another wonderful day with my daughter, we have very limited time together but always enjoy the chats together 🙂

    Today I am grateful that my dogs are healthy. We had a little scare this week and this morning all our fears were put to rest. It’s a good day. 🙂
