Today’s Gratitude List

 gratitude symbol





Today I am grateful for:

  • autism home rescue 03231201Leopard geckos.  We have two, named Pancake & Waffle.  The first one we had was named Egg (hence the breakfast theme) but unfortunately he died a couple months ago.  Leopard geckos are cute & friendly & if you have patience, they can learn to play games with you.  I discovered that if I waited until Egg stuck out his tongue while he was looking at me & I mimicked him, he’d walk closer to the glass & keep playing with me back and forth.  Something about inter-species communication just makes me happy.
  • Hawaiian coconut coffee.  Exotic, sweet, comforting.  Makes me think of vacation.  Yum.  Enough said.  I mention coffee a lot, I know.  But it keeps me from falling asleep at my WordPress virtual office, so that makes it something to be thankful for every day.
  • Imagination & humor.  Were it not for the funny pictures and characters jumping around in my head, I think I might fall into a deep depression some days.  Alex’s father said to me years ago as we were listening to the radio in the car:   “When this song comes on it makes all the cartoon animals in my head form a conga line.”  And ever since then, as soon as I hear the first few notes of that song I see the conga line and I laugh.

What are you grateful for today? 

Write it down, sing it out, share it, share it!

(and remember to play!)

    What could you tell me please about the green symbol on this day’s posting? I don;t know why, but I love the look of it. Thanks. Sorry to hear about Egg. I am grateful for my geckos, too. xxx

      Thanks for the thoughtful note– it’s always nice to meet a fellow gecko friend! That green symbol is one I found when I searched for “gratitude” images. Apparently it is a symbol that means gratitude. If I ever get my tattoo in honor of my mother completed, it will have that symbol as part of it 🙂

        Ohh, What a Glorious Tribute. If she’d approve then she really is/was likely to be one in a million. How Lucky you are in this. Thank you for getting back to me. xxx
