30 Days Of Gratitude: Day 1...

I have found a post on Pinterest. Yes. Pinterest. I'm addicted. I need an intervention.

It's 30 days of gratitude. I need to focus a little more on the positive side of things and I need to sort of take a break from other things I'm working on.

So here goes:

Day One: What smell are you grateful for?

I absolutely love, love, love the smell of fresh cut grass. That is the one I am grateful for. It brings a lot to my senses and invokes peaceful feelings. I could sit outside on a nice, warm, sunny day and just inhale the smell of cut grass.

That smell brings me back to when I was a kid living in Michigan. I certainly didn't smell a lot of it living in Arizona. Then we moved to Alaska, and I think the first time I smelled it, I about passed out from sheer joy. It brought a smile to my face. I couldn't get enough of it. I even volunteered to mow the lawn just so I could smell it.

How about you? What smell are you grateful for?

True, not much grass in Arizona. Too expensive to water it.
I'm grateful for the smell of Thai food, because I know the taste will soon follow.
