Today in Gratitude News, I'm thankful for...(giveaway to Shabby Apple is a bonus of this list)

Source

1. Tuesdays, while they are the worst day, only come once a week.

2. People who know how to prioritize, to look at two things side by side and see which person or thing is more important, and then to focus on that thing.

3. Sunny days with low humidity - the few days like that last week were a freaking dream compared to this humidity. Add to things I'm not thankful for: humidity.

4. Epsom salts. Miracle things.

5. Finally finding cotton shorts longer than crotch length with pockets to crap around in during the summer. This is not as easy as you'd think.

6. Books. I love finding a book that I think I won't like that I end up reading obsessively immediately.

7.  Iced coffee.

8. Farmer's Markets.

9. Doers - the people who talk the talk and walk the walk. Doers do for themselves and others without looking for glory or even acknowledgement. They help you because you need it and they expect nothing in return. Sometimes it's as simple as a private pep talk, sometimes it's a small favor, and sometimes it's something so big that it takes your breath away. I try to be a doer in some way every day, and I appreciate the shit out of other doers.

10. Clean running water, something so many people in other countries don't have access to.

Finally, I'm thankful to Shabby Apple for giving one lucky reader a $50 gift card to win. Shabby Apple is an online dress boutique that specializes in vintage and retro dresses. They are so cute, I die over them. Click vintage dresses to see their fabulous selection.

  6. Gratitude is the BEST attitude. I am grateful for You!
    I have favorite clothing items,namely shorts w/ good pockets, that I wish I could find again. Wish manufacturers would not discontinue items.
    Grateful for A/C and fans and of course our lovely healing ocean oasis salt-water pool. Love this weather, too. Would rather go swimming or come in to get cool and never have to wear coats. Summertime is the best for me.
    Carpe diem, all!
    Love your MOMMA

  13. Agreed on the shorts thing! Sometimes Old Navy has some draw string ones, but they usually sell out fast.

    I am thankful that my husband and I are both employed and we don't really have to stress about our bills. (not that we're rich or anything)

  21. I'm thankful that it is Tuesday! Tuesday is usually the only day of the week I have no commitments. I can see why people hate it though. Hope you're having a good day. :)

  24. I'm thankful for clean water. It might seem small, but many people around the world don't have access to it. I can't imagine ever dying of thirst, but some people do. You should never take the little luxuries for granted because you're insulting those who are without them.

  25. I'm always thankful for my parents and specially to my lovely mom.

  26. I am thankful for my senses. Sight to read this wonderful blog and so many other things, hearing for the lovely sound of birds (preferably after 5:00 am), Stephanie's laugh, Jack's voice, touch to feel my dog's fur, tasting so many wonderful foods and smelling those foods, flowers and so much more.

  28. I'm thankful for my new job that I start tomorrow. Not sure if I will like it, but thankful to get out of the house for 5 hours (and I am going to LOVE the discount I get on my sons clothes)!

  35. I LOVE this kind of stuff! Taking a minute or two to think of the good things always makes me happy :) Today, I'm thankful for my awesome family, summertime, and my health - I try to remember that last one when I'm pushing myself to go for a run or head to the gym.
