Daily Gratitude #5

1.  Today during my lunch hour, I stopped at the bookstore to look for daily motivational/ inspirational books.  I found two I liked, but in the spirit of saving money decided on buying one.  When I got to the register, I discovered both gift cards in my purse were fully charged allowing me to get both books (went back later for the second) for free!  I LOVE free books!

2.  This evening my husband and I decided to drive an hour into Indianapolis for dinner as an early Valentine’s / I took tomorrow off, dinner.  One the way to the city we got to see the prettiest sunset I have seen all year.  Lately it’s been gloomy and overcast not providing a good view, but today it was brilliant and colorful.

3.  Tonight at dinner, I ordered a french press coffee.  It was sublime (until this evening I had only had I one cup all week).  I even shared a cup with our waitress!  Definitely considering a purchase of a french press pot, four cups is the perfect size.

    Ohhh that coffee sounds delicious! Share it with me next time 😉

    On a more serious note, it is interesting that reading your daily gratitude posts triggers me to think about what I am grateful for today:
    1. The opportunity to work with a range of students and be an influential factor in their education.
    2. People I can turn to for advice.
    3. Good chocolate.

      We will have to figure the halfway point from New Zealand to the US… I’m thinking somewhere on an island in the Pacific and we will meet for some coffee 🙂

      Your gratitudes are fantastic! I love that I have starting finding more people to turn to for support.

      I started reading a book yesterday. The Book of Awakening: Having the Life You want by Being Present to the Life You Have, by Mark Nepo. It’s a daily meditation-like book. I started at the beginning even though it’s dated as Jan 1, but the book has been speaking to me. I’ll start sharing some of my insights, but I think you would enjoy the book a lot.
