"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 19, 2011
Today, I am grateful for wonderful friends and neighbors. These past few weeks have shown me that there are many wonderful and loving people in my life. I want to thank all those who have helped us adjust to having another little person in our family. What a blessing she has been, but I know it would have been a lot harder if we hadn't had help from the wonderful people in our ward and our good friends we have made over the years. I am truly grateful to be a part of the LDS Church, as I know this has brought so many of these people into my life. It is so wonderful to be a part of such a wonderful community.
