People who approach life with a sense of gratitude are constantly aware of what's wonderful in their life. Because they enjoy the fruits of their successes, they seek out more success. And when things don't go as planned, people who are grateful can put failure into perspective.
Seeing and catching up with old friends. Worship service. Being a part of something bigger than me. Chez Karine. Being mentored and learning. Mentoring someone. Willa Ford.
LBDs. New makeup toys to play with. Family. Laughter at 5 PM. Letters.
This is why I think I might've been French in my past life:
I'm always in a hurry to get going, though in general I dislike starting the day. I first have tea and then, at about ten o'clock, I get under way and work until one. Then I see my friends and after that, at five o'clock, I go back to work and continue until nine. I have no difficulty in picking up the thread in the afternoon. When you leave, I'll read the paper or perhaps go shopping. Most often it's a pleasure to work.
- Simone de Beauvoir
