Gratitude
Being grateful is such a fulfilling way to go through life. It can be so easy to lose sight of what we do have and what we're blessed with.

There is always going to be something going on in our lives that will tempt us to feel sorry for ourselves or to remind us that things aren't just quite "perfect". It's so important at those times to keep in the forefront of our minds the beauty of what we do have; the treasures in our lives that make it unique....

We all have something for which to be grateful. What an enriching way to journey through life!

Count your blessings!

    emoticon Blog Chrys! We so often forget that gratitude is an important part of life. Sometimes blessings are overlooked as we speed headlong through our days. Taking the time to be thankful is most important to living successful, healthy lives. emoticon for the reminder to smell the roses. emoticon Deb

    With everything that has been going on lately I can often slip into a downward spiral. I am trying to have a more positive outlook. I love this blog that you wrote. I definitely think that working on gratitude would be good for me.

    Gratitude is everything...

    Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.

    Amen. I have read that "if all we say to God is thank you, that is enough".
    We all have so much to be thankful for. Some of us just have to look a bit harder to find it, but it's there!!

    Thanking God for my wonderful life, Cookie

    Every morning I try to start out by thanking God for all the blessings that I have.

    My mother fell last night, but she's not hurt. My brother checked on her. She is just bruised and sore. My brother took the rugs out of the bathroom.
    We just came back Thursday from a visit and a doctor's appointment with her. For 88. 5, she doing pretty good.
