Attitude of Gratitude

Posted: January 6, 2020 in Uncategorized

Four years ago Dawn Q. Laundau of Tales from the Motherland (Click for more details) presented other bloggers with the challenge to spread gratitude throughout the internet. It’s very simple. Take 10 minutes to list 50 or more things you are thankful for

  1. Dear Lish,

    My you were fast! And both you and Dawn mentioned the one food that’s my top favorite and I didn’t mention it. Sushi. Sashimi, too. Nor did I mention the color purple. I ran out of time. 😉 Love seeing your list.

    • Ah, thanks. Looking back in WordPress I saw that I had participated before and listed some of the same things. I’m glad I found your Spread the Gratitude post on Facebook. Lovely to read what makes others happy and see what we have in common. Happy New Year to you and yours. Lish

    What a wonderful list, Lish! Imagine how many more you could have added with the five extra minutes you were allowed 😉
    Isn’t it great that Dawn gives us the opportunity to stop and focus on the wonderful?
