Day four. What food are you grateful for today? Today, I am grateful for dove chocolate for a variety of reasons — for the antioxidants that I truly believe dark chocolate gives off and for it satisfying my sweet tooth. I am grateful that I look forward to it after my meals so that it satisfies me without allowing me to go overboard with sweets (because the Lord knows that I will).
Day five. What sound are you grateful for today? Today, I am grateful for the sound of guitars strumming and voices singing and pianos playing and every instrument/vocal chord that ties together to make the beautiful sound of music. I look forward to it — on my way to school, when I want to worship, on my way home, relaxing outside, and even the classical music that I play when my students begin to write. It is relaxing and beautiful and today, I am reminded to be thankful for such a beautiful gift.
