Weekly Gratitude

“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.”
Denis Waitley

Oh how I wish it were easy to live every minute with love, grace and gratitude.  I find myself struggling each week to write a weekly gratitude post.  I don't know why, I certainly am lucky; I'm in good health, my family is in good health, I have a wonderful home and husband, I have a job....  but I seem to be stuck in feelings of negativity and feeling overwhelmed.  When I feel overwhelmed, I don't take the time to appreciate the little things or live with grace and gratitude.  Frankly, I'm a grouch.  Hopefully work will slow down soon and some time off in June will help.  For now, I'll try to keep things in perspective and take one day at a time.  

One thing I am grateful for this week is finishing the mini-marathon last Saturday.  It took me a while (2 hours, 26 minutes and 42 seconds) but I finished and ran (slowly) the whole way.  I am also grateful that I can now move my legs without pain. 


  1. good for you! how long was the mini marathon?

  2. The mini marathon is a half marathon, 13.1 miles. Thanks!!
