30 Days of Gratitude

After reading a friend’s Facebook post today, I’m inspired to take her challenge of acknowledging one thing that I’m grateful for each day during the month of November.  I probably won’t post my gratitude list on Facebook every day, but I am going to take a minute away from the busy hustle and bustle to focus on one thing in my life in which I am grateful, for the next 30 days. 

Hmmm… Maybe I’ll create a few pairs of custom gratitude socks to remind me to take a moment and appreciate.  I also think some gratitude socks would make nice thank you gifts!  I think I’m on to something!

Day 1 – Family.  This one can (and I’m sure will) be broken down into several nuggets of gratitude throughout the month as I’m fortunate to have great family.  There’s mom, dad, kids, etc. and each one deserves a day of acknowledgement this month.  Here’s’ an old black and white photo of my parents on a pair of crew socks.  Maybe I’ll send his and hers socks to my folks this month as a little way to let them know that I’m thinking about them.  They’re awesome parents and grandparents, and I’m sure I could let them know how much I love them more often than I do.

Speaking of family and gratitude, I’m reminded of a time when my nephew’s pre-school teacher asked him what he was grateful for during a Thanksgiving program.  He responded confidently that he was grateful for chickens!  We busted up with laughter in the audience and wondered where on earth he came up with that one!  Perhaps he thought chickens were neglected since the buzz all month was about turkeys?  Who knows, but this pair of socks is inspired by my nephew Carter!

Day 2 – Not to jump ahead a day here, but I’m feeling pretty grateful for the opportunity to create custom socks for happy soles at Sockprints with my business partner and fellow mompreneur.  Our vision started on the sidelines of a soccer field while watching our daughters play.  We’ve gone from “soccer moms” to “sock-er moms!”
