Day four of five days of gratitude. Here’s what I’m grateful for today:
1. Words. I love writing. I love reading. I love learning new words. I love using old words other people don’t use much anymore. I love big words. I love small words that say a lot. I love mellifluous words. I love alliteration. I love a good rhyme. I love song lyrics. I love poetry. I am grateful for glorious, glorious words.
2. Travel. I adore all stages of travel – dreaming about it, planning it, getting ready for it, embarking on the adventure, getting there, being there, enjoying every second and taking a million photos while there, the sweetness of returning home, the never-ending enjoyment of looking through all the photos and remembering and re-living each trip, and of course starting the wonderful cycle all over again. I am grateful for a life that has been filled with amazing travel experiences. I am grateful for being able to pass on the love and joy of travel to Zoe, our little adventurer. I can’t wait to watch her travel the world… I know that she will.
3. Zoe’s love of nature. She has gotten me outside so much more than I ever was before her. She has eliminated my dislike for bugs – with a few exceptions. She has filled our whole family with a renewed love of nature. I love it when she looks at me and says, “Mommy, let’s go find some nature!” This always leads to our best adventures. I’m grateful for our little nature grrl.
