The ABCs of Gratitude...part 2 of 22 part series

     Well here we are day two of the Gratitude Challenge, and today's task is " to use the alphabet as a fun and quick format for making a list of things for which you feel grateful.  Share this list with your social network though email, a blog post or a Facebook or MySpace page."  So it looks like today we are focusing on the ABCs of gratitude, here we go!

A- Art
B- Brothers
C- Chloe (my dog)
D- Dad
E- Eternal Families
F- Family and Friends
G- Grandparents
H- Home

I- Ice Cream
J- Jesus Christ
K- Kindness of Others
L- Love
M- Mothers
N- Nieces and Nephews
O- Oceans
P- Prayer
Q- Quilts
R- Reading
S- Sister-in- Laws (love the fact I have sisters now!)
T- Teachers
U- United States of America
V- Voting-huge blessing we have to be ABLE to vote!
W- Work
X- X-Rays (saved my life NUMEROUS times!)
Y- Years
Z- Zoos, I have so many happy memories at zoos!

     Now looking at this list it reminds me of so many memories, each and every item I picked has memories attached to it, and it again is a testament to me of how the greatest things in life are not even things.  I encourage you to write a list of your own, put pen to paper and see in black and white so many things that you too are blessed with.  I have been blessed with so much, and I am very lucky.  It is true that so many times we focus so much on what we would like or what we don't have that it ends up completely overshadowing the wonderful things that we do have.  This month (and from now on) I do want to make a more conscious effort to recognize the blessings in my life both great and small and to focus on that.  What blessings are you grateful for?
