Live in Gratitude

Last week, I was tagged by dear friend Tulika on Facebook to participate in a wonderful challenge - The Positive Challenge, where, "For 5 days, you post 3 positive things that happened to you or you are grateful for that day. At the end of each day, tag/nominate 3 people to take part in the challenge"

Living and practicing Gratitude for a while now, I was thrilled to take this up and would like to share here my Gratitude List:
