Day #6 – What in nature are you grateful for?

30 Days of Gratitude

Unlike the others so far, Day #6 of the 30 Days of Gratitude Prompts was a no-brainer for me. I immediately thought of one specific thing: the sun.

In the earlier prompts I’ve had trouble narrowing down my choices. However, I believe that’s part of the “gratitude enlightenment” process… to make us realize that we have so many favorites and choices.

There are a lot of things in nature to be grateful for:  wildlife, flowers, starry nights, the ocean that I love so much (I’m convinced I was a viking/sailor in a previous life!)

I derive much pleasure from ALL the things that the sun provides. The vibrant colors that exist thanks to light itself (prompt #3.) The foods I love (prompt #4) and the bird songs that greet me each morning (prompt #5.) 

My appreciation for this wonderful (and necessary) orb in the sky is demonstrated through many of the photos I take. Sunrises and sunsets are a popular subject, usually coupled with a beautiful land or seascape.

PFF July 15I mentioned in a former post that I’m always looking up at the sky. Between the sun, moon, stars, and cloud formations, there’s always a unique and special view.

My favorite season is summer and I moved to Florida for several reasons, one being that it is the Sunshine State!

With so much to choose from when considering all that nature offers, what is your answer to Prompt #6? Whatever you choose, take a moment to recognize and enjoy it today!

Carpe diem!
