Hunter of Gifts
It was sunny and warm at Ocean Shores yesterday.
I had the most tasty fish for lunch.
How hard the clerk at the seafood store laughed when I asked her if the saltwater taffy was made in China.
Staff who remembered my mother and her issues.
Puppy mill dogs on their very best behavior, always knocks my socks off.
A full 24 hours with my Rob.
Memories softened by time, driving through my old home town.
Remembered to get fishing line for my Power Sticks
Remembering that I remembered something...
Laughter over learning to use our debit cards for the first time.
The use 12 times a month which in turn earns us 2.25 compounded interest on our savings. Try beating that anywhere.
I'm reminded by this card every day is full of gifts. I kept a gratitude journal for a number of years, it changed how I viewed life. Every day is better when we are appreciative for the gifts that sift through us and to us from all directions. We don't even have to hunt for them, they fall into our laps, nay they leap into our lives, if we but notice.
"Each day provides it's own gifts." ~ Marcus Aurelius AD 121-180
