A To Z Of Gratitude: A

Even during our worst days we can find something to be grateful for; something to make us smile, give us hope, encourage us to keep going. And it’s quite often a simple thing like a cool breeze on a hot summer day or uplifting lyrics in a favourite song. There is always something to be grateful for. Always.

And so today I begin a new series, the ‘A To Z Of Gratitude’ that will run every Thursday until every letter of the alphabet is used.

Let's begin...


A is for Animals


Imagine how lonely the human race would be without the companionship of these creatures that we share this beautiful planet with.


I am so grateful for them. For their presence.


Happy Thursday, everyone.

(Please consider joining me in this a to z of gratitude.)

  1. I like your A/Z of gratitude!! Running weekly should have us enjoying this series to almost the end of the year :)

    So true, the world would be such a darker place without the joy of animals. Can't tell you how many laughs we got from our corgi when he was around and now the joy I get watching wild birds eat from the food we set out.

    Looking forward to the rest of the alphabet :)

    1. It'll take us all the way to the holidays, which I realized after I posted this. So in a way, it'll show gratitude for the rest of the year!

  5. This is a GREAT idea for a series! And you've chosen the perfect answer for "A." How much animals have enriched my own life ever since I was a little girl!

  8. I think we bond so well with animals because we are animals too. I always find it funny with someone doesn't believe humans belong to the Kingdom Animalia. We have animal cells, our DNA is closest to other animals, we have every qualification for a mammal, and share so many similarities to the great apes.
