Keeping a gratitude list:
- Keeps me humble
- Puts things into perspective
- Reminds me of God's faithfulness
- Encourages me to look at the small, simple things and not just the big
- A reminder not to take things for granted
- Makes me smile
I keep a daily journal of at least 3-5 gratitudes for each day. Sometimes I have more, but I challenge myself to have no less and to try not to repeat any so that I am forced to really search for even the smallest thing that I find gratitude it.
So here are a few gratitudes I have since getting back into the swing of blogging again.
My parents lovingly accepting me back home for a bit while I
work on Recovery.
Getting to participate in the NEDA Walk in Dallas with good friends & the generous donations from friends and family for Team Eden.
My treatment team- the first time I have ear had a team of support in recovery that is all in communication, on the same page and have my best at heart.
My new car that I desperately was in need of and the great deal we got.
Sweet friends that have been such faithful support.
and the little things like:

A good color of toe-nail polish
So, what are you grateful for?
