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.

April, 16, 2011

Here I am again. I know, I know...I have been a slacker with the blog. I hope that I can get into a regular schedule again soon :) Having a little one who wakes me up every 3 hours has taken a tole on my ability to be constant with anything else ;) But she is definitely worth it ;)

I am so grateful today for the life of my loved ones. I just read a blog of one of my friend's friends. Her little boy has leukemia and has been really sick these past couple of years. And to top it off, her sweet husband (who I went to school with) died a few years ago. So it is her and her little boy. I was overwhelmed with gratitude for so many things in my life after reading their story. I know that I have had my own problems and pains...but I know I have never experienced the grief this poor little family has seen. It was amazing to see this little guy smile, even while in his hospital bed.

I am so grateful for my babies, for my husband and for our health.

Life can change so fast. Hopefully we can be grateful for those we have, and love them a little more.
