Morning Gratitude

Good morning, people! This morning I awoke to a beautiful sunrise and figured today would be a fantastic day to write a quick list of things I’m thankful for. Remembering some of the things I have to be thankful for always gives my day a boost, and I hope my list inspires you to be filled with gratitude, too. I set my timer for eleven minutes then worked on my list until it beeped. I was rather amused when I numbered them to find out I had written down exactly 100 things. (Another thing to be thankful for, cause even numbers like that are so much fun!)

I’d be delighted to hear some of the things at the top of y’alls list if you feel so inclined to share.
