The topic for today's Gratitude Journal post is something you enjoy.
When I started doing these pages for a Gratitude Journal, I thought I might do maybe 50... but I've kept getting ideas and making new pages, so now it's over 80.
I do have a few more, so I'll add them as "open" topics - though we'll be away camping at the start of December so I won't post every day.
So here is today's page, in a few different colour choices:

Those of us who grew up without the Internet are still often amazed at its existence and the way it has opened up our lives with instant worldwide knowledge and communication.

Art can take many forms, not just painting or drawing – it may be sculpture, collage, textiles, cake decorating, photography…
Even the most amateur dabbler in art can gain great pleasure and therapy from the hobby.
Another aspect is the enjoyment and emotion felt from seeing art works.
What does art do for you?

The real heroes of this year have appeared... and they're not the sports champions, movie stars or even world leaders - they're the Health Care workers, who have been putting themselves and their families at risk, working long hours in and extremely trying conditions and in restrictive, even painful protective clothing, to keep the rest of us as safe and as well as possible.

Today's Gratitude Journal page celebrates trees:

It’s easy to spread a little happiness as you encounter people from day to day… a smile always helps, or a compliment, an extra little gesture, a thoughtful note, a felt “pocket heart” (1,000 Hearts kindness project), “pay it forward” or random act of kindness (e.g. shout someone a coffee anonymously), or even just by being there for someone… don’t forget to check out the “Kindness Pandemic” Facebook group if you haven’t already.
One of my favourite projects is to paint small rocks with a simple picture or inspiring words, seal with clear spray, and leave them in public places such as playgrounds, shopping areas etc. for people to find. It's a cheap, fun hobby, and there are Facebook “Rock” groups for many places... or you could start your own :)
