Riki Schumacher: Gratitude Is the Best Attitude!

I think about writing a post for Molly’s new blog almost daily.  Why? Because I am grateful for so much,  every single day.  I let life get in the way of expressing that gratitude.  So thank you Molly for reminding us to put the word to paper. 

Recently, I attended another artist retreat.  That makes two for this year. Am I grateful for that?  Yes. 

Am I grateful that our son opened up his home to us for four nights, so we wouldn’t have to buy a hotel room?  Which allowed me learn and play?  Yes. 

Am I grateful that our two grand daughters got to spend three of the four nights with us at his apartment? Yes.  I can never get enough of them.

Am I grateful that we were all able to have fun and party in this one bedroom apartment, with the girls sleeping on a blow up mattress in the living room, and our son on a cot in the kitchen? Yes.  Feeling guilty, but grateful!

Am I grateful they love dogs and Maddie was not only welcome, but was played with and loved on constantly? Yes.

Small gestures reap huge rewards.  I am so grateful we have that kindness that runs so freely in our family.  I never take it for granted.

Hugs to all,
