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 for forgiveness. I am always astounded at how forgiving my children can be, not only with each other, but with me as well. I am also grateful that my husband is not the type to hold a grudge...it is nice to know that as long as I eat a little humble pie when I am wrong, he is also quick to forgive. But the greatest gift is the gift of forgiveness from my Savior. It is amazing how much forgiveness I need daily. I love my Savior and I know he is always cheering me on, even when I mess up. Truly, forgiveness is a great gift. May we all be a little more forgiving of those we love the most.

Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting. ~William Arthur Ward
