  1. I’m grateful for cool cloudy mornings that lend themselves to easy rest; for a coffee pot with a timer, an old dog at foot and the whole day before me to enjoy & explore. Cheers! 🙂 MJ

  2. I’m grateful for the technology that gives me the opportunity to meet others like yourself; for a cup of “Joe” in the quiet,early morning hours;for the sunrise and the “gift” of a new day.

  3. I am grateful for the arrival of spring and its many gifts and attributes; the reminder that we too may renew ourselves and our careers into a blossoming source of beauty even if we feel like we have been buried beneath the dark cold ravages of our own personal winter.

  4. Those are beautiful flowers!

    Today I’m grateful for the sound of rain hitting my roof, non-fat vanilla chai tea lattes, and blog posts (like this) that make me smile! 🙂

    • Oooh I love being inside on a rainy day; nice. And accompanied by a chai latte? Now that’s a nice afternoon :). thanks for the cheers! MJ

    I’m grateful for the warmer weather here in the drab, chilly UK.

    • Yay! It’s slowly starting to thaw here as well and every teeny bit of sunshine we get feels glorious :). Cheers Nicole, MJ

  7. I’m grateful for a sunny, early spring day, with nothing on the calendar and the freedom to catch up on things around the house.

  8. I am grateful for wide open spaces and glasses of red wine and a cozy house with rain on the window, the promise of spring…and friends.

    Nice post. I’m grateful for the simple things; fresh flowers, living across from the beach, good food, friends and a good element of romance in my life. 😀
