Last night, I was thinking about gratitude and thankfulness. I know they are related but they aren’t the same thing. In that moment, I was having a hard time separating them, so googled it and one site said that Thankfulness is a feeling and Gratitude is an attitude. I guess that’s where we hear “Attitude of Gratitude.”
Anyway, I read that Gratitude is more about being thankful even when nothing exciting is going on, so gratitude can be for the mundane things in life, the everyday ordinary things, things we don’t always take notice of anymore.
This morning as I was trying to get back to my morning routine and rituals, I thought about this and I wrote…
Those are things I experience everyday, nothing out of the ordinary for me but they mean the world to me.
Every morning as DH gets up, before he heads downstairs, he comes over and gently kisses my forehead. Then, when he gets ready to go upstairs to get ready for the day, he walks over to my chair and again, kisses my forehead. Such a small little thing but I tell you what, if for some reason, he doesn’t do it, I feel it deep within me, and I think he probably does too, because he usually comes back to it.
So today, I’m grateful for the little things that happen without much doing.. life, love, sunrises and kisses.
