Gratitude Challenge 2012 – Day 1

The setup — each day between today and Thanksgiving, try to “really” take stock of that for which you have great gratitude. Shout it out on Facebook and share your thanks, inspire others to be grateful, and open yourself to new gratitudes.

So I’m going to try this, but with my twist. Mostly because I like to have fun and bend the rules. And though I fully comprehend and support the sentiment of the challenge, cheesy makes me want to gag. So here goes!

Today, I’m grateful for asparagus, though not so much the after-effects of asparagus. Seriously. It catches me off-guard EVERY time. I really need to leave myself a post-it note in the bathroom. Or a reminder on my phone. Or something.

I’m also grateful for a daughter whose favorite meal of all time includes asparagus. And that one day soon, we’ll be able to harvest asparagus from our own garden, grown from seeds planted by my husband. How cool is that!?

Cool side note – Did you know that you only eat the male plants? Google it if you don’t believe me. Girl power (in the plant world)!
