This morning, I’m grateful for my snooze button. And, because I used it and need to be at work early to prepare for a day I know will make me think “TGIF, TGIF” many times, I’m also grateful for the “search” function on my blog. I used keywords thankful, Thanksgiving and gratitude and found the following posts from the past:
One Last Thought – This was my last blog post of 2014. I talked about my gratefulness for the year, and my hopes for the following year. 2014 was a year of changes and challenges, and I had no idea when I wrote this post that 2015 would be the year I’d lose my mother and other loved ones.
Sunrise, Sunset – In 2011, I was grateful I still had both of my parents–that I could still hear the sounds of their voices. Having lost my mom this year, I’m especially grateful to still have my dad.
God Winked – In this 2010 post, I reflected on Thanksgiving and a change of perspective brought by Maya Angelou.
Ordinary – Re-reading this entry from earlier this year, I remember trying to adjust to quiet days at home, when there wasn’t much going on. I smile fondly at that memory. 🙂
Going back and reading these posts, I’m grateful for memories. And, I’m training myself to be grateful for the present moment, too. Because you never know what’s coming down the road.
