Most nights right before I lie my head on my pillow I think about one moment during the day when each of my children had a twinkle in their eye. Maybe they were telling me a joke they thought was hilarious or they took a bite of that very chocolatey chocolate chip cookie. And then that twinkle. I am so grateful that that twinkle shows up every day – often many times during the day, because that twinkle is the last image I hold in my thoughts before I go to sleep and it shows me every day that there is light and beauty in this world.

Sharing here/filling out the Daily Gratitude Habit survey made me think of how I actually do naturally practice gratitude and I never thought of it formally before.

What are you grateful for today?

Take a couple minutes out of your day to create/reinforce the habit of gratitude. Even and especially if it's a hard day. Where can you notice something beautiful or meaningful? Who can you thank? What might be a lesson or blessing in disguise? Take a deep breath. Become present and choose gratitude. ♥
