Today’s things I am grateful for are things I have absolutely no control over, but that does not mean I feel less gratitude about them!
Start each day with a positive thought and a grateful heart. ― The Light in the Heart
- This weeks weather…there has been an abundance of sunshine and more for today and tomorrow! And!! The mild(er) temps to accompany the sunshine. I am doubly grateful because these things (sunshine and milder temps) will make putting out the lights much easier!
- Speaking of lights, it was an absolute joy to watch my neighbors grown grandchildren come and put out their Christmas lights! They were as delighted to do this task as their grandparents had watching them do it! Bonus gratitude, seeing those twinkling lights lit up last night!
- And my final out-of-my-control thing I am grateful for is that Steve is working from home all week. (Reason why? Well, they had a bit of a COVID Super Spreader Event at his office and so… back to work from home!) No, I am not grateful that people are sick… but I am grateful that Steve is, thus far, not sick and home!
There you have it… three things I am grateful for that are entirely out of my control! What about you? How do you look at those things you can’t control?
See you tomorrow with some Unraveled Gratitude!
These are good ones! The older I get, the more I realize how very few things are under my control. I hope Steve stays well and I’m also grateful for slightly warmer weather (it means I don’t have to use as much heating oil)!
Things to be grateful for over which I have no control. Well, yesterday I had to drive through some really heavy rain, and then the sun came out, with three rainbows in the sky, just wonderful. My sons sending random text messages which brighten up my day. Finding a carparking space in a busy carpark. I’m sure there must be more, but these are three that have happened in the last two days. Good to think of them.
Great things Kat – especially Steve not sick and home! hopefully he can stay put for awhile. Sometimes everything seems random and not in my control…which is fine…it teaches me patience, gratitude and acceptance.
Very good things to be grateful for. Hope Steve continues to feel well.
I am also grateful for warmer high temperatures and also the sun coming out in full force after that gloomy weekend! I will keep my fingers crossed that Steve stays healthy. My husband is on a work trip right now and I’m really worried that he’ll bring something home with him. I’ll admit I’m not great at not worrying about things outside of my control, which is probably why I focus so much on things that I can control. We can’t control the current, but we can just keep swimming, right?
Your list of grateful-nesses is perfect! Hoping Steve stays healthy! I am putting together a list of the small things I am grateful for — like the cat who jumps into my lap with in 30 seconds of me sitting down in my recliner and stays there warming my lap until I have to get up. My knitting group is having a mini-T’giving feast today. Friends, especially knitting friends, are priceless!
I think it’s so important to embrace the things that are out of our control. It just makes life feel more manageable, you know? Being grateful for those things is an extra bonus.
Milder temps on Thanksgiving is always a good thing! It makes it so much easier to walk off a full belly 🙂 I’m glad Steve is safe from Covid and that you’re HAPPY that he’s working from home!
I love seeing all the Christmas lights popping up! We’re having a warm streak here, too, which is quickly melting our 2 feet of snow from last weekend. Oh, Covid. What havoc it wreaks. . .
