November Gratefulness Challenge

Choosing to be Grateful: Day 12


A childlike spirit can dwell in even the oldest of persons.

Yesterday it snowed all day here in Colorado. The big fluffy flakes that are so beautiful to watch.

This morning my husband went outside to shovel the walk and driveway. As I looked out at the chilly scene I thought about how as a child I would have been running to make a snowman in weather like this.

So, even though I am not a child anymore, I thought, “what the heck, I’m doin’ it.”

I tried to build a snowman but it was all powder and not wet enough to stick.

So, I shoveled the light stuff alongside my husband and then when the adult duties were complete I made a snow angel.

Childlike spirit satisfied.

What about you?

Day 12: What are you grateful for that helps you find your childlike spirit?

Bonus Challenge: Share that joy with someone else.
