Growing Gratitude

I am grateful for my family, for our upcoming trip to enjoy Alice's graduation from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado and the opportunity to gather with old friends, new friends and extended family. 

Gratitude Quotes
  1. "Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." - Marcel Proust
  2. "We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures." - Thornton Wilder
  3. As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. John F. Kennedy
  4. At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. Albert Schweitzer
  5. The deepest craving of human nature is the need to be appreciated.

  Beauty and simplicity surround us all the time and are things that I try to embrace as often as I can slow down to see. Every Monday I will post…a “growing gratitude” post. Basking in our own state of gratitude as well as the gratitude of others always seems uplifting to me. Plus, I always love a good positive start to the beginning of each week. I will put a Mr. Linky at the end of each week’s post in hopes that some of you may want to join in this mindfulness journey with me. You can formulate your own posts however you want to…lots of pictures, or none; lots of thoughts, or maybe just one profound one. The main gist is to share whatever you are feeling grateful for in your life…right now; here and now; in the present. I’ve included a button as well, so if you’re interested, you can grab a button and link back to each week’s post. So let’s begin, shall we?:.
