This is week 2 of ‘Be Grateful Every Day‘.
I restarted this gratitude project last week and every day I posted in the comments section the things I was grateful for.
Here’s a brief summary:
Monday: I was grateful my wife was able to take time off work.
Tuesday: I was grateful to find some space and a little peace of mind.
Wednesday: I was grateful that my dog hadn’t injured himself.
Thursday: I was grateful that I had cause to check the oil in my car because it was running on empty!
Friday: I was grateful that I had cause to check the oil level in my other car. Also empty!
Saturday: I was grateful for the clear poly envelopes for storing DVDs.
Sunday: I was grateful for my rivet gun.
If I had to pick the thing I’m most grateful for it would be the lucky chain of events that led me to check the oil in the cars. A seized up engine is a seriously bad thing.
The funny thing is, the events that caused me to check were unwelcome at the time, but subsequently turned out to be very beneficial.
It turns out that I’m rubbish at car maintenance and as a direct result I’ve now instituted a weekly check of the fluid levels on the cars. It’s a recurring event in my calendar and I aim to get the kids involved too.
So here’s to a new week of gratitude.
What are you grateful for today?
