One of the best ways to have perspective, for me, is to remember the things I’m grateful for. There have been times when I’ve gotten stuck in negativity that I’ve done a quick gratitude list (in my head or with another) and started on the path of releasing that negativity. Gratitude lists help me to remember what’s beautiful and to remain present in my life.

Each week, Laurel Regan’s Gratitude linkup over at Alphabet Salad is a way for me to share a few of the things I’m grateful for with others.

A few of the things I’m grateful for today are:

  • Clean, open, lighted rest stops.
  • An afternoon free to nap with Hun as Baby Boy spent time with his grandma and a cousin.
  • Home cooked, tasty Puerto Rican foods.
  • My little family’s fun while traveling.
  • Shea moisture to address my hands.

  • Breastfeeding.

  • Stream play at a wonderful state park.

  • Great conversations with Hun about news events and viewpoints.
