This was my gratefulness moment of the day: Having taxi cab rides for 2,000 pounds a ride (1 euro)
I am doing a #365gratefulproject, where - for 365 days - I have to record something that made me grateful that day, for 365 days in a row. 366 days, a friend pointed out, as February has 29 days this year; it's a leap year. I am on day 59 now, and it goes pretty smooth so far. But then again, there are so many things I can be grateful for.
There's the weather, the country, the possibilities, the diversity, the choices and the fact that I have a steady income. There are the many things one can be grateful about with friends (having them) and family (their health and happiness), and then there are the 100 and 1 little things on a daily basis that one tends to overlook now and then. And when one think of grateful; isn't 'great full' a better spelling. Full of greatness?
I, for one, today, am grateful that there are actually people reading me, and that they leave me little notes now and then. I do not (actually almost never) reply, but it does not mean I am not grateful for their interest. I have met - virtually - quite a few interesting people through this blog. One of them just sent me a note about the fact that it was actually 11 years ago (how true), not ten. Thanks Fadi!!
Another reader started writing me now and then when his grand daughter did an internship here in Beirut, and he was sort of checking out what place this Beirut really was. Now she is a published writer, and suddenly her name pops up on the internet and I am thinking "I know her grandfather!!"
And so today is all about gratefulness.
