Gratitude in Spite of It All

I just haven't been feeling it the past couple of days. "It" being this new way of living that introverts like myself are supposed to love. One thing that helps me is focusing on gratitude. Not sweeping general gratitude like home, family, health, but gratitude for small, specific moments of beauty. (Thanks to Melisa Beckerman for this phrase.) Today the smell of the Daphne shrub by our back gate is one of mine. Its sweet smell greets me when I take off for a run or when I come back from the grocery store and it lifts my spirits. Thank you Daphne! (And thanks to Mary Gerstenberger for putting her there!)
What small, specific moments of beauty are you grateful for today?
