Gratitudes 1/3/14

"May you find what you are looking for." ~Chinese proverb

Today I am grate*full...

1. For my home.

2. For my job.

3. For the people who worked tirelessly to clear the roads.

4. For the custodians in the school where I work, who have also tirelessly been clearing snow from the grounds, in bitter, piercing cold. It's 5 degrees (Fahrenheit) in Corning, with windchill factor making it feel like -8. Ugly.

5. For my donors to my GoFundMe campaign, notably today, my friend Lisa, who is the most recent donor.

I am indebted to Antonia Montoya who runs the Collecting Gratitude Collective on Facebook, and has a blog at

Follow me on Twitter @succulentdiva and if you post gratitudes here or elsewhere, link back to them on Twitter using the hashtag #365gratitudes. I'm trying to get this thing to go super-viral! <3

Have a great day, and if it's as cold or colder where you are as it is where I am, STAY WARM!
