On January 15, 2016, I challenged myself to write about being grateful over 100 days. Through this challenge I am getting to know myself better each day. I enjoy this challenge because I still need prompting to look inside myself and to be grateful daily. It is not easy but it is satisfying.
I am grateful for delicious fresh pressed juice that I enjoy making most times! Other times, I find myself being too lazy to make juice because I want to avoid the clean up. However, when I am sipping the vibrant healthy juice, I know it is all worth it. Why do we get lazy even when we know the rewards are great? I made juice using granny smith apples, ginger, and carrots. Topped with hot pepper.
Simple, yet so yummy!!

Sometimes I enjoy spending the day in pjs relaxing. I am grateful to be able to relax without worrying about anything going on in the world. Today, I spent it downstairs, in the dark, catching up on watching Walking Dead.
I am grateful to have friends who are doing things they love and are passionate about. Harold Johnson has a masters degree in Law from Harvard University, is an author, and practices law in Saskatchewan. He has taken time off being a lawyer to work on this project and is following his heart. It is a powerful and insightful goal.
Today, it is sunny and filled with all sorts of possibilities. I woke up to a dusting of snow that looked so fresh and magical. It didn't bother me that it was April and suppose to be Spring in this part of the world. When I drove into Kanata I saw these wild turkeys meandering across 6th line road. With no one approaching or following behind me, I stopped and took this photo of them.
I am grateful to witness nature in motion.
I am grateful that I have a fireplace and can enjoy the heat on this cold icy day. Cold and wintery outside but warm and cosy inside. What is it about a fireplace that makes us feel so protected and secure?
YES! I am grateful that when I opened this coconut it was fresh. Sometimes you can't tell if it is fresh until you get home and crack it open. Happily I made almond coconut milk this morning to go with my oatmeal.
Every now and then gratitude can be found in the most unusual places. I poured my tea and just before I sipped it, I noticed this tiny heart shaped leaf sitting at the bottom of the cup. A tiny heart to remind me that love is everywhere.
