Writing to inspire, encourage, and enjoy

The sunrise on Saturday November, 23rd

In my effort to post about what I am thankful for each day this month, I continue the journey on my blog today. It has been rewarding, eye-opening, and a blessing to focus every morning on giving thanks. In my imagination, I feel as if I am building a thankful shelter where I can run to when a rough day comes. I can remind myself, “See what you have to be thankful for” when I am tempted to complain.

My Thankful Post This Morning on Instagram

My husband took this photo while deer hunting on Saturday. I don’t often get to see a sunrise, as I am usually a late riser. I have my best writing time from 9-11:00pm. The sun came up in a blaze of glory Saturday and lit the sky with its cheer the rest of the day.

I am so grateful for the sunny days. The sun effects my mood and energy. When the sun shines, I feel much more motivated to get something done, whatever that may be. On cloudy days, I’d rather sit and read or watch a movie.

Today does not looks as bright. After I blog and do some writerly business, I may watch a movie with Ruby 🐶. Blessings on your day, whether it’s sunny or not.

I look back on the last twenty-two days and find a deep place of gratitude building in my heart, which I have not felt in this yearly season before. If you have never written down each day what you are thankful for, I challenge you to, at least for one month. You will be surprised and blessed, I guarantee.
