The Gratitude Challenge: Days 6 & 7

This weekend marked days 6 & 7 of the Gratitude Challenge.

My task for yesterday was to call someone I hadn't talked to recently. I decided to phone a friend of mine - one of my dearest friends actually. She is married with no children (by choice) and since I have given birth, we have drifted apart quite a bit. We still love each other and we still see each other on occasion. But we don't speak to one another or hang out as often as we once used to. Life has just taken us in two different directions. I called and got voicemail but strangely, I chose not to leave a message. I'm not sure why I grew intimidated at the sound of the beep. Perhaps I wasn't sure what to say in a message that wasn't urgent in nature. But I regret that I didn't take the opportunity to tell her how much her friendship means to me, despite the obvious distance between us. I must definitely make it up to her - and to myself.

Today's challenge was to take a picture of something that makes me feel grateful.

With every sip of my pumpkin pie latte, I would close my eyes and appreciate each savory drop. My son was asleep in his crib and my husband was asleep on the couch. It was just me in my own little world. But I felt complete.
