Hey now, it is called 30 Days of Gratitude, not 30 Continuous Days of Gratitude and besides I completed close to half of it and now I am going to finish with the next 16 days.

True Story!

Right before I posted about Day 14, my office work was increasing exponentially & in addition to working hard with pure concentrated brain power, I was also putting in some additional hours. This type of busy is not typical, but we were doing our best to push through clients’ requests before we had our impactful E-System freeze to make some much needed updates.

Normally, I work 37.5 hours a week…

With the impending e-system freeze, work was a little frantic and I was knackered at the end of each day, which is also when I take time to write.

It was indeed!

I also took two weeks of vacation which has come to an end and I will be back in the office bright and early on Monday.

Luckily, I like my work 🙂

The long winded story is I am back and continuing with Day 15, something beautiful I am grateful to have seen. Recently, I was out for a walk with my husband and we stumbled upon a glorious sunset sky of pink, purple and orange.

Skyline of Halifax, Nova Scotia

I commented to Brian, of all the beauty in this world, there is nothing manmade which can compare to anything God has created. I am so grateful we paused to stop and take in this colourful masterpiece.

Brian took this pic of me leaning against the rail on the path soaking in the sunset…

Every day we have the opportunity to witness the art of God, but rarely do I pause long enough to take it all in. I am truly grateful for the moments I do stop and contemplate the wonder of it all.

Day 15 for my gratitude is witnessing a gorgeous sunset sky on a calm late summer evening.

What is something beautiful you have seen and you are grateful for having it grace your eyes?

Peace & love – Rachel
