5 Moments of Grace and Gratitude

My friend Rabbi Brian Meyer and I have been emailing each other in the evening for several years about the highlights of our day or answers to a question we pose. I recently asked him for a new idea and he offered this one: note five moments of grace or gratitude each day.

This totally brilliant suggestion has delighted me. It's brief, simple, and allows me to rethink some of the less joyful moments as grace and gratitude too. We do this in an app called Grid Diary, which I've mentioned before, but it could easily be a simple email.

Here are my 5 from yesterday:
Beauty. Driving home on Hwy 6 from the coast.
Amazement. How long it took to put everything from the retreat away.
Love. Time with my cats.
Pleasure. Coming home to a clean house.
Gift. A wonderful poem sent by my friend Sue

If you pick up this practice, let us know what you think.
