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. 28, 2011

Today I am grateful for the fact that I am already free. I am not the one who has had to put my life or my family's life on the line for political, religious and educational freedoms. It may be affecting me with higher prices at the store and gas pump, but I am cheering those nations on....Being free is a true blessing. And my ancestors already paid that steep price for MY freedom. And for that, I am forever grateful!


  1. It has been a while since I came to your blog-and to give back to what lifts my spirits each time I read-I will tell you that I am grateful for the testimony of the Priesthood your husband shared with us when he was our bishop. I have been reflecting on it a lot the last few days-and his words gave me a new and amazing perspective that I had never considered. I will always link the Priesthood and the gift of it with Bishop Martins :)

  2. Thank you Shellbi. I am sure Flavio will be very grateful for your comment as well. :)
