I have been trying to be more grateful in my life. I think I do an ok job, but I want to rock at it. Lately, I've been thinking about it in the mornings, after Mr. Hercules leaves for work and I am in bed alone, waiting for another hour before I really have to get up.

My list usually starts something like this:

  • I am thankful for Mr. Hercules
  • I am thankful for this amazingly comfortable bed (made comfortable by this)
  • I am thankful for the harem of lovely pillows that Mr. Hercules puts up with (which leads me to be thankful for Mr. Hercules again)
  • I am thankful for our safe home
  • I am thankful for this amazing bed
 And then I usually fall asleep again.

My mom gave us these gratitude journals a while back, and I've tried to write things in there, but haven't been awesome at it either. So the past little bit, I've trying to do better. So, with a little more thought, here is part of my list of gratitude.
  • I am thankful for my amazing husband. I couldn't have dreamed up a better man. Some days I wonder if I'm dreaming it all, or really married.
  • I am thankful for awesome parents who have no idea how seriously cool they are.
  • I am thankful for the ability to read (made possible by the awesome parents who have no idea how seriously cool they are), and the passion I have for it
  • I am thankful for my job
  • I am thankful for a reliable vehicle
  • I am thankful for simple joys from etsy that make my hands less dry and my lips less chapped (and my ears more pretty, and my body smell lovely, and my fingers all ring-y, etc. etc...)
  • I am thankful for the right to vote, even if it doesn't go my way
  • I am grateful that I don't have to be scared when I go out shopping, or come home at night
  • I am grateful that I have a kick-toshie family 
I am grateful for this guy
