Unconditonally Grateful


When I am able to travel, write, go to dinner with friends and family, I’m grateful. I’m grateful for beaches, shopping, crafting, yoga, but when I list those things, I think, “Those are things most people would be grateful for. But what about the things no one really thinks about?”

 Today I’m grateful for the things I never even think about, but I definitely appreciate. Like the lines that separate parking spots. Imagine if those didn’t exist? And people parked sideways and left too big of spaces, or too little of spaces, or no space at all. I’m thankful for sunblock, and whoever invited air conditioning in cars as it is 106  degrees here in Las Vegas. I’m grateful for trashcans, because how awful would it be if there was nowhere to through anything out? I’m grateful for the people that bag groceries at the store (whenever I use self-checkout I am reminded how much I would suck at this job AND that I always manage to squish the bread I just bought). I am grateful for big fluffy blankets and pillows. I’m thankful for AAA, and how quickly they rescue me each time I lock myself out of my car. I am grateful for chairs, for battery warnings on phones, for the little paper that covers straws, for clocks that let you know its 11:11 aka time to make a wish. I’m grateful for caller id, for movie soundtracks, and for every single one of you who makes this blog what it is.

Happy Monday everyone! xoxox

  2. Isn't it funny how many little things that we are never grateful for, but shoud be. I love your list, and YES to the parking spaces. When it snows up here and you can't see the lines, people suddenly forget how to park.

  3. YES! Too true - the trashcans thing is a big one - and the men whose job is to clear them out for us all week after week. In fact, all the people who do tough jobs so the rest of us can have easier lives. I'm thankful for them. Thank you for that trigger!

  4. Yes, yes, yes to your list! And since my husband had skin cancer, I totally agree about being grateful for sunblock. We never leave home without it. Have a great week!
