National Gratitude Month

November is National Gratitude Month and like us, you may practice being thankful and kind all year long so to have a month dedicated to being grateful may seem kind of silly, but there seems to be a day and a month to celebrate everything so why not gratitude? Especially since practicing gratitude has been proven to make us happier less stressed people and I think we could all use a little more happiness and a little less stress. So here are the top 10 things I am grateful for not just today but all year long.

  1. My family. This includes my husband and two boys as well as my mom, dad, brothers, sisters, in-laws and cousins.
  2. My friends, I could not live this life without them.
  3. My home. It’s where my family gathers, it’s where fun happens, it’s where rest happens, to me it’s peace and security and I’m happy I have one.
  4. Books. I mostly read them for entertainment but every book I read teaches me something and I can not imagine a world without books.
  5. Food. I really don’t like to cook it but I sure do enjoy eating it, especially if someone else makes it.
  6. Wine. If you know me, you know this had to be on the list.
  7. Travel. I’m extremely lucky that I’ve had the opportunity to travel as much as I have. Like books, I mostly travel for entertainment but I learn something new every time I travel.
  8. Willow trees, baby ducks and the ocean.
  9. A healthy body.
  10. Work. Without it none of this is possible.
