I try, as often as I can, to remind myself of some of the things that I am incredibly grateful for in my life. It keeps me grounded, it keeps me living in reality, and it keeps my ego in check when thinking about the fact that many people around the world do not have it as good as I do, through no fault of their own.
I am thankful for:
My cup of coffee in the morning! I really Savor and enjoy the first sips
The roof over my head
My health and that of my family. Really thankful
The ability to do what I love
I'm thankful for my children. They're mature, levelheaded, funny and full of common sense
I'm thankful for modern conveniences. Computers, cars, electricity, telephones, the Internet … remember what life was like without these things?
For Nature It is everywhere, and the best part is it’s free! Look outside and take in a gorgeous sunset or try to find shapes in a cloudy blue sky.
For Warming-up on a cold day It can be delicious with a sweet treat like hot chocolate and it has been very chilly here this week.
For these and all my blessings I am truly thankful.
I hope your day is filled with lots of good things to be thankful for too.
May your joys be as bright as the morning,
and your sorrows merely be shadows
that fade in the sunlight of love.
May you have enough happiness to keep you sweet,
Enough trials to keep you strong,
Enough sorrow to keep you human,
Enough hope to keep you happy,
Enough failure to keep you humble,
Enough success to keep you eager,
Enough friends to give you comfort,
Enough courage and faith in yourself to banish sadness,
Enough wealth to meet your needs,
And one more thing:
Enough determination to make each day
a more wonderful day than the one before
