Being grateful

Thursday, September 06, 2012

Today I read on a sparkfriends page that we should keep a "Journal of Gratitude" as a positive reminder of all the good things in our life. She also suggested blogging about it.

I have not written a blog in many months (actually 5) and realized that my list of things to be grateful is very long.

In no order of importance I am going to list some that immediately came to mind.

My family...I am truly blessed to have a close family. My husband is amazing and my kids are a gift. My grandson is so much fun and there are 2 more on the way! My mom is healthy and happy having found someone to share her life with and love.

I am healthy. I don't suffer from any major health issues :-)

I have a good job and get to work with my family. They get me through the hard days.

I have a house which is a home. It is filled with furry friends and my wonderful husband.

My real life friends are amazing as well as my "spark friends" .

I am going to add to this list but for now this is what came to mind.

Let's all be grateful!

    Your gratitude list is wonderful, Elaine. They are all certainly the important things in life. I really like the idea of doing a gratitude blog...even every day we can all find something GOOD, no matter how bad the day. We are all richly blessed, I'd say. ♥

    Life presents us with the opportunity to be grateful! And we should embrace that and take advantage of that opportunity! Hope you are having a great weekend! Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon emoticon
