What are you GRATEFUL for?

"Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone." ~G.B. Stern

I have decided to start this gratitude blog for several reasons. I have found that lately I am rarely grateful for all that I have and find reasons to feel ungrateful. I have also seen, via facebook and other sites that I am not alone. Many of us find so many reasons to complain. I hope this blog inspires us, even for one moment of the day, to say "thank you" for even one blessing in our life. My goal with this blog is to share at least one moment of gratitude, even on my very worst day. I hope that you will feel inspired to share with us what you are grateful for and together we can help lift and change the way we feel about our everyday lives and be a more grateful people.

Today I am grateful that I was able to have a birthday. I don't mind getting older. I am grateful I get to celebrate a new year.

Lots of love,

Ok, I know it has been WAY too long since I last posted. I don't have a good reason, really...I think I could blame many things, namely, time, but I will just say that I want to start a fresh. Isn't that what life is about anyway? Shouldn't we make mistakes, learn from them, not make excuses, and move on?

Today, I am grateful for the opportunity I have to repent and change. I am grateful that I can have a bad day and the next day try a little harder. To that I owe my Father in Heaven and the mercy of my Savior so much! I am truly grateful for my Savior's love and mercy.

Much love,

This last week was busy. We had Hannah's birthday party, Hannah graduation from pre-school and then her cute dance recital. It is amazing how busy our kids are these days. I am grateful that my two other daughters allowed us to celebrate Hannah without too much complaint. I am grateful that my girls all REALLY love each other. They, for the most part, cheer each other on with their different accomplishments. What a blessing they are in my life.
