Prose Challenge – Write a five sentence story set in a meadow of wildflowers.

Poetry Challenge – Write a rhyming poem inspired by what you are grateful for.

I will continue to write a poem like last week.

It will have the first letter of each line spelling the word “gratitude” when reading from the beginning to the end.

Nine lines of thought’s about the word GRATITUDE for this week.

Gratitude shows from a loving heart that makes the world beautiful regardless of all the problems.

Radiation of appreciation and gratitude will focus your life on an amazing roll of happiness throughout your life.

Always remember to smile and look at what you have in life and appreciate everything big or small.

True forgiveness is not easy, do your best, as it is not good for your health and happiness within.

It is a true feeling within yourself that we need to share it with the world, to try and bring peace instead of war.

True beauty of nature is shown through what the joys of the land, and the flowers that bloom brings to the heart and appreciation

Usefulness and thoughtfulness will help you walk with joy, focus, and grace that everyone will notice and hopefully spread it.

Deep gratitude within your soul for all you have in your life will show every day by the beam of light sparkling from your eyes.

Everyday start with positive thoughts and a grateful heart, that is gratitude, you were not born with it, you learn it from your caregiver from day one.
