I have spent the last couple of weeks (yes - weeks!) trying to come up with something that starts with x, that I am personally grateful for.
I even pulled out my old school dictionary to see if I could find something.

No luck. Turns out that I'm not really grateful for anything that begins with x. However I figure that if Dr Suess can have ox and axe and fox on the X page of his ABC book then I can have sex on the X grateful page!
As a doula and childbirth educator sex is what keeps me in business - other people's sex of the baby making kind.
So thank you to all the people having sex! I'm truly grateful. x
What is the gratitude challenge? I set myself this challenge as a way of maintaining some mindfulness and gratitude, but also to help me take time each and every day to focus on my writing.
I would welcome anyone else who wants to join the challenge. The rules are simple: Start at a and work your way through to z. You must do one each day, include a photo and they must be at least 2 paragraphs - after all the idea is to work on your writing not just your gratefulness.
