Gratitude in June

Last year for June, I did a little gratitude thing in honor of my birthday month. Just a little thing, not part of any kind of challenge or anything like that. I thought I would do a continuation this year, too. I hope you don’t mind. 🙂

And if you’d like to “play along,” by all means, feel free! There’s no pressure. 🙂

  1. A moment of inspiration … It might sound silly, but I’m grateful for those moments of inspiration that compel me to make a soap for someone. I seem to be inspired by people, and I like designing soaps that remind me of them.
  2. An article of clothing
  3. Something money can’t buy
  4. A form of movement
  5. A family member
  6. A friend
  7. A leader or teacher
  8. A simple pleasure
  9. A scripture passage or quote
  10. A person you spent time with today
  11. A person you can call
  12. A person who makes you laugh
  13. A writing tool
  14. A spiritual practice
  15. A breakfast food
  16. A meal
  17. A dessert
  18. A drink
  19. A difficult situation
  20. A personal trait or characteristic
  21. A personal gift or ability
  22. A small gesture
  23. An upcoming task or assignment
  24. An opportunity
  25. A silver lining
  26. A local spot
  27. A travel destination
  28. A game
  29. A current song on the radio
  30. A single moment today

Advice from An Old Farmer

– Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.

– Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

– Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

– A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.

– Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

– You cannot unsay a cruel word.

– Every path has a few puddles.

– When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

– Don’t judge folks by their relatives.

– Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

– Live a good, honorable life… Then when you get older and think back, you’ll enjoy it a second time.

– Don ‘t interfere with somethin’ that ain’t bothering you none.

– Always drink upstream from the herd.

– Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

– Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin’ it back in.

– If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around..

– Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

– Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain dance.


I tell you, those old farmers know a thing or two!

Have a lovely weekend!
