December 14 Prompt: Appreciate
What’s the one thing you have come to appreciate most in the past year? How do you express gratitude for it?
The one thing I have come to appreciate most this past year is downtime. True downtime. Involving no work. No extended family obligations. No real agendas. Simply freedom to just be. I express gratitude for my downtime in many different ways. I write. I read. I play with my daughter. I cuddle with my husband. I take naps in the middle of the afternoon. I linger in a hot bath. I get sung underneath a warm blanket while the fire blazes in front of me. I breathe. I remember that inside the stillness, life is oh so good.
