Reflections on Sharing Thanks for 30 Days

Norman Levy Preserve Pond, December 2012

It was another beautiful December day here on Long Island. This is my 30th post and I want to reflect on how sharing thanks is influencing my life. I have been enjoying writing the blog and I am surprised how it has helped me view any day in some positive light. I took this picture last week. I enjoy walking at the Norman Levy Preserve. What is amazing to me is how nature can heal itself. The Norman Levy Preserve was a garbage landfill many years ago. Next to the preserve is still a town dump. When I visit the preserve you can see part of the dump or choose to marvel at the views of the bay. I am using this metaphor about sharing thanks everyday. On the blog I am choosing to be thankful for the kindnesses or beauty afforded to me, rather than vent about what has gone wrong. Here is what I was thankful for today.

1) Grateful for my second follower! Welcome to the blog.

2) I am thankful to my good friend Stella. We had a nice phone conversation today and got to catch up with each other. She is one of the few people I can truly confide in and she completely understands me.

3) I am thankful for another beautiful warm sunny December Day. Enjoyed taking my dog to Cedar Creek Park in the afternoon and saw the sunset.

4) I am thankful to my husband who is busy putting up our Christmas lights tonight!
