21 Days of Contagious Gratitude

Today is day 9 of 21 Days of Gratitude.

For me, it was a no brainer on what I would write for my post reflecting on gratitude, and what I am grateful for.

When something is so perfectly said, there is no reason to rewrite it.  So today, I am quoting Proust.

Marcel Proust said…

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy;
they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

And with that, I will let you know who makes me happy.  All of you!  My followers, my friends, and my fellow bloggers.  You are all my charming gardeners making my soul blossom.  You fulfill me with unlimited happiness each & every day.  I am here, you are here (YAY!), and I am so very grateful for your love & support :)

To show you my gratitude…(I’m sure you know me by now & can guess what I did ;).

Yep, I designed a free printable of this fantastic Proust quote – YAY!

Enjoy xx

I am also sharing November 9th with Adrienne from The Iowa Farmer’s Wife.  Head on over to her excellent post where she shares her story about teaching her children gratitude and some wonderful ideas to get the kids involved.  {love} it!

  1. a BEAUTIFUL quote. I really should show more gratitude to my mother. she is my heart and soul and deserves to know that everyday. thank you for reminding me :)

    • awww, thanks Sally! Glad it touched a button for you – this whole month of gratitude has definitely made me a bit teary eyed. Especially trying every day to put in to words my gratefulness. I love how you said in your post, “I was wondering if my mom was the only one who was going to read it” – I thought the same thing when I started :)
