If a fellow isn't thankful for what he's got, he isn't likely to be thankful for what he's going to get.
Frank A. Clark
Perhaps it is because some of us have so much that we fail to recognize the really important gifts that we receive. Often times we get so busy with chasing after the things we want, after the things that are somewhere out there, that we forget to enjoy the present moment, we forget to be happy.
I’ve found that by taking stock of what we're thankful for can make us more joyful . There are ordinary things that happen each day that we may not even think of as noteworthy for our gratitude list. If we slow down, we may actually notice the things that really make us happy.
Today I’m thankful for:
2213. For DDIL#1, today is her birthday!
2214. for chicken soup, good for the body and the soul
2215. for the US Mail, it delivers my cards where they need to go
