Day 16 - Saturday
I am pretty good about being grateful for everything in life…. Little things like the sunrise that comes over the trees by my house in the morning and EVERY morning it looks like a cross when it does. I think that this is GOD’S way of reminding me GOOD MORNING the day is new and you should be grateful that you have this day and the power to choose your destiny in life. When we have gratitude and are grateful it says something about being comfortable in your own skin.
I am grateful for my positive attitude. Life has its challenges and somehow I explore positive areas to help me cope. My feeling is this: If we understand and provide a "listening ear" other individuals, life is better not only for one's self, it also helps those in need. I understand there is a downside to this. Those we try to help can refuse our supportive insights, which in turn, can have a negative effect. I am a believer in doing little acts of kindness to others. I also can see my limitations. Life is not perfect, but I try to make life better on a minute scale.
I am thankful for all of the opportunities I have been afforded. My family, my friends, my job, all gifts really when you think about what some people in this world are dealing with. There is so much that is taken for granted every day that it is nice to reflect and compare on what could be, if any one of us were forced to live without the freedoms we have come to expect. I am thankful that I am able to share the time off I have with family . I am truly thankful that I get to enjoy each day that I am given.
