Who knew that there were so many of them…and everywhere!!
I didn’t start a Gratitude Jar on January 1 as planned. Part way through the month a friend posted about having a gratitude reminder on her cell. I thought she was talking about an ‘app’ so I searched for one. There were a couple but the one that I downloaded to my smart phone has a Sunflower as the ‘icon’. With each sunflower seed I plant I’m prompted to write what I’m grateful for. I decided that besides writing what I’m grateful for at this app I will also think of something that I’m grateful for each time I see a sunflower around me.
It just so happens that the last piece I painted at ‘Color Me Mine’ is…you guessed it…a sunflower…which is now on my kitchen table. So each time I walk through my kitchen…I’ve got to think of something to be grateful for.
Then today, I noticed that the little photo above my password prompt on my startup screen is also a photo of a sunflower plant that my ‘daughter’ had me buy a couple of years ago. I chuckled when I noticed that today since this means that each time I go to log into my computer after having been away from it…I’ve got to think of something to be grateful for.
And is it just me, or does it seem like there are a lot of commercials with sunflowers in them? Now I’ve got to think of things I’m grateful for while watching commercials?!
Who knew that there were so many sunflowers…and everywhere!
If this keeps up I’m going to be grateful all the time soon!!

For those of you who have enjoyed my writings about what it was like growing up Mennonite, you will appreciate this post by one of the "Mennonite Girls Can Cook" ladies: Saturday in Julie's Kitchen. We are from different parts of the country and even the world, but all related to this Saturday routine.
