From time to time I consider keeping a running list of things for which I'm thankful, although I never settle on a format (journal? blog page? meme-style?), so it usually gets done as a one-off or goes entirely undone. I did have a list on an ancient version of my web page titled Happy Thoughts, inspired by the Barbara Ann Kipfer book which I purchased on my 16th birthday (at a Hallmark store, with Valerie), and which shall forever be a favorite, if only for the fact that "the position of your head as you bite into a taco" is one of her happy thoughts. I added my own inside the cover and in the margins of the now-battered book, and kept the web list for a year or two before that version of the site passed into obsolescence.
As luck would have it, I was considering the idea again yesterday, and then some stream-of-consciousness browsing today (while nursing Xan down for a nap) led me to this guy's blog, where he has proposed a 365-day practice of gratitude: list 5 things a day for a year, starting any day you like.
I'll start today. I noticed that "Grace in Small Things" is GIST, which is kindof nifty (can't tell if Schmutzie intended that), so I'll title my posts thusly and create a gist category.
