"Working" on gratitude these days. :)
Here's my morning start - (#1-4)
* rain jewels bedecking the Japanese maple outside my window
* eyes to see the beauty of the rain
* memories of another life in West Africa with little rain, sparking gratitude for every sparkling drop of moisture falling here in this rain-soaked city (this is Seattle, after all)!
* being filled up (like a rain gauge!) with His gracious gifts, day by day.
