"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 for modern medicine. I am grateful that I can go to a doctor or dentist of my choice and get the help I need for myself and for my family. To know that there are ways to make sure my unborn baby is healthy and growing is so comforting. I know God has blessed us with this great blessing of modern medicine and the knowledge to help us live longer, more comfortable lives.
I am also grateful that when me and my children went to the dentist yesterday, none of us had cavities! Hooray!
