Gratitude...I Hear it Helps

I'm sure you've all heard that practicing gratitude helps us feel better about our lives; some even believe it can actually relieve depression. In years past I've started and stopped a daily gratitude journal--not sure why I didn't keep up with it.  Maybe I took things for granted.  Well right now I'm going to give it a try again.  For a few reasons, but mostly to help me be more optimistic during recovery from my foot surgery. It can only help right?  My first week post-op has been a bit depressing to be honest and I think I want to take charge of my outlook during the next 7 weeks of no driving, no swimming....all the things that are bringing me down.

1.  My stylus and iPad I got for Mother's Day that I'm still able to "paint" with

2.  Having my sweet daughter to help feed me and keep me company everyday since it's summer break.  Even though she's not thrilled to be my caretaker, she's still making me smile.  She and her friend played Apples to Apples with me today which mad me feel like a normal person for a little while.

I'm going to try everyday during my recovery to post pics of what I'm grateful for.  Things cold be a lot worse, right? I just need to change my perspective, right? What are you thankful for today?
