Gratitude Friday

This post is a mashup of The Little Bliss List and Joy Jam, and as such is meant to celebrate: the little things that brought me hope and happiness this week, the sweet stuff of life, those small gifts that brought me joy this week. By sharing them, I not only make public my gratitude, but maybe also help you notice your own good stuff and send some positive energy out into the world.

1. Facebook. With the storm last week, it was my best source of information about how real people were really doing, and there was so much love and concern, kindness connecting people, making a scary, stressful time not so bad.

2. Books. Oh, how I love to read. Tell me all the stories!

3. This, bath time for toys. I’m so grateful to have two dogs who play with the toys, make a mess that I can clean up, and a functioning washing machine to use in the process.

4. Friends who get it. You know who you are, and I love you for it.

5. “I love you.” Even when I already know, it’s nice to hear.

6. A stand up desk. After a few long days in a chair in my Eddy Hall office at my paid work, I realize how awful sitting that much makes me feel. I’m so grateful for my stand up desk in my home office, and need to figure out how to convert the work one.

Bonus Joy: Another week with Dexter. I changed all the calendars in our house over to November, with him following along to “help.” I really didn’t expect him to still be here, and he even went running at Lory State Park the other day. My sweet boy.
