For a myriad of reasons I have been in a funk lately, so in order to climb out of the abyss I am taking a page (or should I say post) out of another blogger’s notebook. I am going to start posting three things a day that I am grateful for or that give me comfort. Maybe this will turn things around, or at least make me realize that life is not rife with strife.
Grateful according to the thesaurus embedded mysteriously in my laptop has numerous synonyms: thankful, appreciative, glad, satisfying, gratifying, pleasant, pleasing and comforting. I am going to use all these renditions, but particularly the comfort aspect in my next eighteen posts, which should take me to the end of August. This is my new mini-challenge ~ wish me luck.
Things that comfort me:
1. The fresh unopened magazine waiting on my bedside table for me to relish before I go to sleep tonight.
2. That first taste of the chili that is bubbling on my stovetop right now—it hints of my favourite season to come: fall.
3. Savouring the last couple of weeks my youngest son will be at home before he goes back to college at the end of the month.
