Gratitude 20June14 Grateful and Thankful


Wine? Yes, please via

Cheers! It is a day of celebration for me. Today is the 500th blog I have written. I am sitting here with a big smile and feeling of great accomplishment.

When I began writing this in September 2012, it was with the intention of simply stating what I was thankful for in my life. It was my every day reality check. It started as a daily email with 6 women friends and grew to what it is today — a published blog online read by many.

During this wonderful journey I have written about my life happenings, my favorite things, being a warrior in the struggle of depression, that I am fascinated with words and foreign languages. At times, I allowed my imagination to take us to far away places and the “what if’s and wishes” of my life. You discovered I have “interesting” to say the least music taste and the majority of pictures shared are of my love for the water. Must be the Pisces in me, ya think?

Much of what I share begins with my daily writing in my journal. It is often my diving board into the pool of my thoughts printed here. Despite the eclectic nature of what is delivered from my heart to yours.  I have tried my best to keep them focused on being grateful and paying it forward.  Most importantly, my words reflect the simplicity of what my life has come done to. When I prioritize what is important to me, my peace of mind and what my content spirit feeds on; it always comes back to what I am grateful and thankful for.

Today I am thankful for ..

  • The sun is shining!
  • The smell of freshly cut grass out my window
  • A wonderful and busy weekend ahead

Without too much thought, name three things you are grateful for. Look around, it really is a wonderful world.

affectionately yours, Laura
