Gratitude Catch-up! Day's 8, 9, 10 & 11

Yeah, the days just keep getting away from me!  Between work (Open Enrollment, woo hoo!!), and taking on a new adventure (Thirty-one consultant, baby!!), it's been busy.  Good busy though!!

I have been trying to remember to express and enjoy my gratitude.  So here's a catch up from the past few days.

Day 8 - Sleep
Sleeping Maxie
Maxie is our rescue dog.  The poor thing has such anxiety issues that sometimes he really only finds peace when he is relaxing or sleeping on his huge doggie bed.  I am very thankful for this loving, protective doggie...even with all his craziness.

Day 9 - Holidays

The Most Thankful of Holidays
I am grateful for Thanksgiving!! Not necessarily because I love to eat, or that my birthday is close by, but it really is my favorite holiday.

Day 10 - Kindness

Gratitude for kindness!
Yes, it's a Cream Filled Devil's Food Cake, but I can't get there here in Colorado.  It was amazing of my mom to mail me these two big boxes when I really needed both kindness and chocolate.  I'm thankful for my Mom because she knows exactly when Mom is needed most.

Day 11 - Friendship

Maybe it's not the most appropriate pictures to show friendship...but it was sure nice to share that pile with friends.  I am incredibly grateful for the friends in my life.  They offer support, strength, guidance and love - and they want nothing in return except for support, strength, guidance and love.

Everyday is not going to be sunshine and roses, but taking time to stop and be grateful goes a long way.  My blessings are plentiful...and I don't take them for granted.
