Yesterday wrapped up my thirty days of gratitude project. A “grateful journal”, if you will.

This has been an interesting and reflective exercise. And although my exercise of gratitude is over, I hope to keep things to be grateful for in my focus every day.

I drove past a church yesterday that challenged me with the question:

What if you woke up tomorrow with only the things you had given thanks for today?

This list of things to be thankful for only skims the surface. But I would be a pretty happy person if I woke up with only these things left. At a glance here they are — the thirty things I am grateful for this past month.
