I'm grateful to sleep in this morning. I'm grateful for a sweet, thoughtful boyfriend that got up to care for my dogs so that I could catch up on some sleep. I'm grateful for all the loving acts that I receive from the amazing people in my life and I'm grateful to share my love in action with those in my life. There are so many ways to share love. Last night we were welcomed into the home of friends and provided with a delicious dinner. This generosity was an act of love. I'm so grateful to have gotten to spend time with them, to meet and learn more about some people that mean so much to my boyfriend. I'm grateful for the laughter we all shared and I look forward to seeing them again. Today it has been ten months of dating my boyfriend and as I look back over the last ten months I can not even begin to list all the acts of love we have shared. I'm grateful for his generosity and his humor. I'm grateful for his patience and his intelligence. While these are all qualities about him, they show up in his acts of love making them that much more genuine and appreciated. I'm grateful for my creativity in coming up with unique ways to share my love with those who mean so much to me. I'm grateful to take the time to hang out with the people in my life because I believe time and attention is one of the best gifts we can give. What acts of love are your favorite to receive? What acts of love do you give to those you love? What simple acts of love and kindness can you provide to a stranger today? How can you spread these loving feelings to others in the simple acts you do? I'm grateful for the beautiful day ahead. I'm grateful for all the opportunities to share love that I will come across today. I'm grateful for these loving acts. Make an effort to do something loving and kind for the people that mean the most to you but also for someone you have never met before. See how giving your love opens your heart to receiving theirs in return. May your day be blessed with kindness and acts of love.
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
