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.

Feb. 17, 2011

Today was a little harder to think of something right away...as my 2 year old woke me up throughout the night. I find that when I am tired I am less inclined to try to be happy. I become a grumpy toddler myself :)

However, after some thought, I all of a sudden felt the little person moving inside of me. Our little angel is growing healthy and strong. I am eternally grateful that I am having at least one more chance to be apart of the miracle of being pregnant. I am grateful that our In-Vitro was successful and that in just 6 weeks we will get to meet our newest addition to our family. What a blessing in my life.

I hope you have thought of at least one thing you are grateful for today and if you want, please share it with us.

Lots of love,


  1. I think that there is very little to complain about when you start looking for things to be grateful for. Even in the midst of turmoil and trials, you can always find something. Just think-you may have just slept through the baby moving inside of you had your daughter not woke you up!

  2. I am grateful for days like today when I'm super sneezy, have a runny nose & a headache. If I didn't have these kinds of days, then I wouldn't know just how wonderful it is to feel energized & healthy & full of life! There must be opposition in all things so we can tell the good from the bad, right? :) Thanks for starting this blog... now I'm actually really grateful for being sick!! ~ Afton
