“Gratitude is the intention to count your blessings every day, every minute, while avoiding, whenever possible, the belief that you need or deserve different circumstances.” —Timothy Miller
Living Life as a Thank You: The Transformative Power of Daily Gratitude by Nina Lesowitz and Mary Beth Sammons
Each week, I get an email that has all the writing prompts from Plinky for the week. I usually just delete it without so much as a glance. This week, there were quite a few prompts that fit in very nicely with my goal here, so I am going to answer one of them as my Day 4 Operation Gratitude post.
Name something you appreciate about each of your immediate family members.

For some reason, today has turned out to be much longer than it should have been. For the last couple of hours, I have been trying to get my son’s computer upgraded to Window 7 and get McAfee up and running properly.
There appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel as it appears that McAfee is just about finished (finally!). Once I am done with this, I will be putting the kids to bed (ahhh the silence 😀 ) and then head to the couch with a glass of wine in hand.
I am so grateful that the day is winding down and I get to start over fresh tomorrow. The ahhh factor of my bed is calling and I am very grateful for that as well!
Night all! Until Tomorrow!
[This is entry 3 of 365 of Operation Gratitude]
We want you to enjoy the contrasting experience, just like you enjoy the contrasting buffet. And we want you to reach the place (and practicing Virtual Reality will help you to gain this confidence) that whenever you’re in front of a buffet that has so much that you do like to eat, as well as some that you don’t like to eat, you don’t feel
frustrated that there are things there you don’t want to eat. You don’t feel compelled to put them on your plate and eat them; you just pick the things that you like. And the Universe of thought is the same way. You can choose from it the things that you like.
