When I started this Grateful series at the at the beginning of 2012, I had no idea of how it would work or what shape it would take. In that first post, Grateful 52, I wrote: I can’t help but wonder what our world would be like if more people took the time to give thanks – to themselves and to others. Thanks for the little things that make life worth living. Thanks for the people in our lives who keep us sane. And thanks for karma – who will, at the end of the day, make sure that all wrongs are righted. Six years later, I’m still grateful. This regular practice of gratitude enriches my life and marks the closure of my week.
