I have a friend who does a daily gratitude post on Facebook. Reading them always makes me feel good. I hope this will do the same for you and you’ll share some of the things that make you grateful.
If you’ve been reading my blog regularly, you know it was over three months ago that I fell and broke the back bone in my right ankle and tore a ligament requiring surgery and more than 6 weeks in a boot. I was grateful when I got out of the boot.
Then began the hard stuff. Therapy. I’m very grateful to the therapists who’ve made such a difference in my life. I’m not running yet, but no wheel chair, no walker, no cane (or only occasionally like first thing in the morning.) Walking on my own. And of course, most important I’ve been driving for almost three weeks!!!
Not only am I grateful for that, but so are my daughters and husband, who hauled me around all summer in a very heavy wheel chair. Boy am I grateful for them.
Now you may remember that I fell right after we moved into our new lakehouse. I have perpetual gratitude for this place. It’s such a blessing to live here. I’m also grateful that we are finally going to be able to fix out garage. It was made funny, and we could only get one car in because the roof was so low.
I’m grateful for my family for cleaning out the garage and moving stuff to storage and into the house (which is now way too crowded). LOL It wouldn’t have gotten done without them. They even succeeded in moving a spare refrigerator out to the boathouse. Be nice on a hot day not to have to walk back to the house for a drink. The workers can get started the second week of September.
Have I mentioned the ducks and birds before? I’m really grateful for them. They always make me smile. They are just amazing.
Charley likes to bark and chase after all the critters, so I guess he’s grateful for them, too. 🙂
We even see deer. Not my house or yard, but just down the street. 🙂
I’m also grateful it is September 1 because that means fall is on its way. My favorite time of the year. More critters: humingbirds and May flies in August.
I’m grateful I got THE THEATRE sent off to the editor. Hopefully, I’ll get it back without a TON of things to do so I can ship it to the formatter so it can be released the end of October. I’m working with a new formatter on this book, someone my PR folks are recommending. I’m grateful to Cheryl and JoAnna with Y & R PR. Because of them, I have a monthly newsletter and my FB Author page always has cool things posted on it.
So what kinds of things bring out your gratitude? Always love to hear from you. I hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day Holiday.
Next week we’ll have Books & Authors, Part 2
