One of the things I am trying to do this year is to continue to focus on gratitude.
It is a good thing to try to keep that at the forefront of my life and I love that every day I can find many things to be grateful for.
I gave this book to my mom for her 91st birthday. There wasn’t a lot she could read or do at that stage but she liked looking at pictures and this book seemed to be one of the things that could give her a small piece of joy. I had asked at my local bookstore, Highland Books, if they had any suggestions for something to give her and this was the perfect answer.
Put out by National Geographic, 365 Days of Gratitude, is one of several 365 day books that they offer. But this one was the most perfect one and I have my copy on my coffee table where I can pick it up every morning, look at the selection for the day and be grateful. The following pictures are pages in the book.
The perfect mix of photographs and quotes make this one book I am grateful to have in my collection.
Do you have a book that you go to daily for inspiration or wisdom? I would love to hear all about it so leave me a comment and Comment for a Cause for UMCOR.

I don’t have a book I go to every day, but this one looks perfect.
What a fantastic idea! I’m sure that she loved that book! What a treasure!
Perfect! I hadn’t known about this book. Looked it up on Amazon- and there are at least 3 other books in the series…I.e. joy, peace, renewal. Wiw0- perfect gift fir me and to give! Happy Monday!
They are really beautiful books. I was trying to find something for my mom that she could look at pretty pictures that wasn’t huge and this was perfect. I found a copy at our AAUW book sale and got that since I haven’t been able to go through all the things they took out of her room after her death. This makes me feel closer to her somehow.
I’ll have to look this one up. I love a lot of the National Geographic photography and I’m definitely a big believer in gratitude.
Wonderful book. Love the quotes.
The book so many of us go to daily is the Bible, but I’m wondering how many of us computer nerds have used the Internet to produce our own illuminated copies? They’d be lovely Christmas presents.
