Gratitude… in the mundane of life

This past week hubby and I took some time off after Thanksgiving to put up the Christmas decorations, get the property, chicken coop, house, etc ready for the winter, and to get some much needed rest from stress. As I went throughout the week I noticed things we had on our list getting done and I felt a sence of calm and peace about it. Looking back I see in those moments I was truly grateful for getting the mundane things done…. for the every day of life… and the quality time chores bring for hubby and I. Chores are never “fun”, but they can be almost “fun” when shared with someone we love. As someone once told me… many hands make light work. So today as I reflect on this weeks value/feeling, I see how gratitude play out in the little things for us and how gratitude allows for peace and serenity about things that otherwise would be hard if not for a little help and change of perception. 🙂
