I’m grateful for this painting that changes every hour in the stairwell at work. It makes running to the breakroom for water totally worth it.
I’m grateful for those magical moments when the frost starts to fall off the trees and it looks like rainbow glitter is being dusted over everything. I’m grateful for them, but I can’t take a decent picture of them…
Ten years ago, my dear photographer husband gave me a digital SLR (Canon, of course) for Christmas. I was touched and felt the need to prove myself worthy of such a gift, so I started Snapshot Gratitude, chronicling my gratefulness through a photo a day.
I learned so much that year about my camera, about photography, about myself. It was a huge amount of work, especially when I decided to add a sister blog, Snapshot Gratitude Rejects, which featured my favorite daily shot, with no gratefulness requirement.
I’m terribly rusty in my photography skills, but as my husband reminded me when I whined about it, “It’s not about the photography; it’s about the gratitude.” Just for the fun of it, I’ll be including matching day links to my ten-year old gratitude in each post, and when March comes along, I’ll link the old reject photo as well.
I’m grateful to have reached a place in my life where there seems to be a little space to reboot some Snapshot Gratitude.
