This is day two of the 3 Quotes for 3 Days Challenge and I want to focus on Gratitude. Much of my adult life I’ve reflected on being thankful for my life. I didn’t always feel this way,as my childhood and teen years were rocky and I was unsure of many things, therefore I was not grateful for anything and it wasn’t until I was a grown adult did I realize how gratitude is extremely vital in life!
Gratitude is thanking each and every valuable person in your life, appreciating the many gifts they’ve given you such as friendship, kindness, patience or maybe a second chance. It’s living with the firm notion that you wouldn’t be the person you are without them and their qualities.
It’s the appreciation of small meaningful moments, such as viewing a stunning sunset or watching my sons talking and laughing when they are together. It’s knowing that I’m so lucky to have a loving husband who makes my coffee every morning. Gratitude is knowing I married into a good strong family and if we needed them, they would have our back.
When you live every breath with gratitude, everything seems amazing. I am grateful for my family, my job and kind co-workers and my home and quiet neighborhood in a small town. Most days I’m grateful for a good cup of coffee and quiet morning moments with my husband. The October ambers, reds and golds of leaves on trees and their gathering in askew piles on the ground are on my gratitude list. Cool Autumn air, sweatshirts and snug sweaters, bon-fires, hot chocolate and delicious apple crisp are all things I can’t live without and I’m grateful for them.
