An Attitude of Gratitude

The month of February seems to have a Gratitude theme in many areas of my life. 

In Cathy Zielski's FIT class, we were asked to document 10 things we are grateful for.  This is what I came up with:

 I've been reading this list every morning just to remind myself that I have so much to be thankful for in my life!

Gratitude also came up in our Life Book class.  Here's my "Heart Full of Happiness" art:

An earlier week had us working on a project called "The Custodian" working with texture and using pastels which were totally new to me.  I struggled with it, but was satisfied with the result in the end and learned a lot about shading:

In the background texture, I've included words like "Play" "Joy" "light hearted" and "healthy" and she now gets to guard my intentions for the year.

I'm also keeping a daily log of something I'm grateful for that day.  The beautiful sunsets I got to witness thanks to traveling to California for work this month definitely made the list!

What are YOU grateful for this month???
