So there’s this thing called a Gratitude Rampage that I do almost every day on Facebook. What you do is type “GRATITUDE RAMPAGE!!!!!” and then go for 10 minutes at least, commenting underneath it what you are grateful for.
Today, I’m going to do my Gratitude Rampage here on my blog to share with y’all.
Ready? Set? GRATITUDE RAMPAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tuesday edition. 😉
- I am grateful that my blog has readers!

- I am grateful for our messy kitchen that means that we have had good meals and are likely to have more.
- I am grateful for the cereal that I had in the house this morning to eat for breakfast so I didn’t have to go to the grocery store to get sustenance this morning.
- I am grateful for the company of good friends on Facebook and AIM.
- I am grateful for my wonderful husband who brings out the best in me and always takes good care of me.

- I am grateful for the talents that I have that were nurtured by good, patient teachers, who made me feel adept in many areas, like music and cooking.

- And I am grateful for this exercise, which makes me mindful of all the wonderful things in life that I might otherwise take for granted.
Thank you for joining me for my Gratitude Rampage today. I hope you consider doing one of your own. They are very fun to do and they always bring happiness. There’s really nothing like counting your blessings to make you realize just how good your life really is. It even makes your chores look good.
I’m off to go pet kitties and do their laundry! MAKE IT A GREAT DAY, YOU FABULOUS PEOPLE, YOU!
And smile from the inside. It always shows. 😉
