What I Take for Granted

Making my morning smoothie.  I lay out the ingredients–apple juice (the apples were from my apple trees), aloe vera juice, flaxseed oil, bananas, yogurt, cabbage, berries, cherries, cantaloupe–whatever fruits and vegetables that are organic and in season–protein powder…the list goes on.

This smoothie has become a daily ritual.  As I add the realfood
ingredients, I am aware that not everyone has these
vibrant fruits and vegetables available to concoct
a nourishing and delicious smoothie.  Yet, here I am,
gazing out the kitchen window at trees and mountains while doing this morning ritual.


Writing Prompt:
What do you take for granted?  Write about it.
Give it some recognition and appreciation.

  2. I got behind and just read this post this morning. I was prompted to write about my body and the issues I focus on while taking for granted all the gifts that are showered on me every moment. While I was writing, I heard an ambulance siren in the distance as well as a sweet bird singing outside my window, perfect reflections of my inner state.
    Thanks for this prompt, Christine!
