The role gratitude plays in my life is not to be underestimated.
Without it, I would be less likely to focus on the good things in life.
Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS
I love stream of consciousness writing and I choose to roll with it, whenever I can let myself care not for the things that might come pouring out from my brain and through my fingertips, onto this blog, and what that might end up sounding like to any perspective readers.
One of the other blogging exercises I take part in
(Finish the Sentence Friday)
had me writing
stream of consciousness
on the subject of thanks and giving thanks, but with a five minute time limit.
Tomorrow I will write out a list of what I’m
and those things that make me grateful, the role each one of ten plays in my life.
It’s Thanksgiving in the States in a few days and they are extra focused in on the things they can be thankful for, despite all the troubles going on in that country.
I know the role certain people play in those troubles, but I try to roll with it, with life, because I am here in Canada and can only watch from a not too safe distance, as whatever happens happens.
I am trying to focus on the role I can play in my own life and how it goes from now on, while I choose to roll with it, whatever happens because I can’t control everything, or even most things.
I can control what I choose to do with the years left in my life. I can think of snow globes and of the fun it was, to be a child during the weeks that are coming up (of Christmas and winter and my birthday), as I imagine myself rolling down a snowy hill.

Wonderful post. If we can always remember, not just this month for US or last month for Canada, to always be thankful for what we have as thankfulness breeds gratitude and that ushers in kindness and love which is something we all need.
A nice take on this week’s prompt. I often wonder what our neighbors to the north of us must think of the madness here. You’re remarkably gracious!
