I'm grateful to wake this morning to all the beautiful colors of life. I'm grateful for the dark, silky color of my dogs' fur. I'm grateful for the golden yellow color of the blanket that kept me warm last night. I'm grateful to go downstairs to all the colors of the kitchen and go into the backyard with the dogs to see the greens of Spring. I'm grateful for all the green growing up in the back, even if it is weeds needing to be pulled because it is the color of life in nature. I'm grateful for the red of the cardinal that flies around. I'm grateful for the multi-colored flowers that are blooming up and down the block. I'm grateful for the color swatches on the table of ideas and possible changes to come. I'm grateful to see in color and appreciate the subtle differences within the greens outside. I'm grateful for my eyes taking in all the beauty around me. What are you grateful for? What colors bring a smile to your face? How many colors are you surrounded by right now? Today, let's take the time to notice all the shades around us. May today's colors brighten not only your surroundings but your life as well.
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
