“The happiest people on earth are not those who have robust bank accounts, or all the good things in this world; but, they are those who truly embrace the attitude of gratitude. Some of these folks are poor, but are still very grateful for the little they have; for the peace of mind they enjoy, for the love in their lives, for the unity in their family and for all the ordinary things many people take for granted. They always focused, not on the things they are aspiring for, but for all the things God has used to bless their lives.”
― Sesan Kareem
I’m learning about gratitude.
I’m now nearly a month into the renewal of writing my daily pages. I am thankful for the purpose and direction this practice has given my daily life.
I am thankful for the constant support Michael has given me as I stumble into the office each morning to write those pages and sequester myself there in the afternoon writing my stories.
I am thankful for those who have found my blog and offer their encouraging words–many taking the time to do so daily. You are my angels and give me such joy.
I am thankful for the memories that surface and the insight that accompanies them.
I am thankful for the spark of passion that’s returned to my life, giving me a new perspective and vision which opens my eyes to the many opportunities available to me.
I am thankful for the courage that enabled me to take the risk of putting my words out into the world.
I am thankful for the opportunity to learn and grow.
Stay patient. Be kind. Pray for each other.
Most of all, know you are loved.
