Gratitude List

Thanks to That Boy Johnson for reminding us all that it's the little things in life that make being in this world so very sweet.

So today's gratitude list is about those little things that make me smile and appreciate everything that makes my world such a wonderful place to be.

I am grateful for ........

water. I will always live around it. There is nothing more calming that watching the rising or setting of the sun reflected in a rippling pond or lake. It never fails to calm, connect and center me.

a good book. Words amaze me. Writers that can use those words to form the perfect escape for a Sunday afternoon astound me. In that same vain - I appreciate poetry more than ever. I never saw it as a way to communicate or express one's deepest feelings but I've been thoroughly schooled (SMH). Now I have my very own collection of Love Poems carefully saved in my journal. Just thinking about them keeps the biggest smile on my face.

friends who like toss my own words in my face when I'm having a moment. Thanks for the wake-up call Fee.

self-confidence. I am glad that I am at a point in my life where I am comfortable with who I am and don't have to struggle to try and please others by being something I'm not.

a good pen. I'm addicted to pens - love the way a good one writes on the paper.

kisses. I adore kisses - of all kinds! I start my day with sleepy kisses and end it the same way - grabbing as many in between as I can. Glad I have people in my life that cooperate. :) Life is good.


  1. Hello Nikki! I like your list. I can appreciate the rain and kisses as well. They are both good for your health. Peace~

  2. Hey Nikki. I love books too. I love words. I love smelling a brand new book. A smoothing writing pen is a writers ultimate thing for me.

  3. Thanks for that. You've inspired me. Been a bit hurt lately and going through some things. Thanks for reminding me of the blessings we take for grante every day!
