{ grateful ME }


Gratitude means:
  • an appreciative attitude for what one has received
  • a warm or deep appreciation of personal kindness
  • a disposition to express gratefulness by giving thanks
Today I am grateful that my mom's surgery was a success. Today I am grateful that I have 60 years of love from her. Today I am grateful that I can continue to love her back. Today I am grateful that my daughter can have many more moments like the the one captured above with her grandmother.

What are YOU grateful for today? I encourage you to take 5 minutes and list out all of the people, things, etc. you are grateful for today. It is a great exercise in re-directing your perspective. After you are done listing out your items, give your family big hugs & kisses and tell them how much you love them.

I think it is so important to remember the positive things in our lives.

"Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough. "
