Gratitude... How we all forget to be grateful for all the good in our lives. Instead we find ourselves complaining...worrying ...being fearful and just plain unhappy. Today my husband and i took our dog for a walk by the ocean. No one in sight just us...the entire beach was our own. As we walked along i started complaining...oh going on about all the wrongs and what i want out of life.
Imagine complaining when this is before you. My husband had enough of my aches and said to me " Pam , how can you complain when you live here? " Look where you are right now and your not having to go to a job right now!" Shame on me...I told him yes he was right and how can i complain when i get to walk this beach everyday.
How can i not have gratitude when i am healthy and just got word that a childhood friend is battling breast cancer? Shame on me.
How can i not appreciate the fact that i have been blessed with a wonderful healthy child and some do not? Shame on me.
I could go on and on with my list of gratitude and appreciation. I think we all can. We just have to learn to focus on the good things and not stare at that one pot hole in the road.
I am grateful that this little blog gets seen by a few friends and followers.. I am grateful for my pets...I am grateful for our new home...I am grateful that i have a supportive and loving husband.
But most of all i am grateful for another day !
Thanks for coming along on my journey i am truly grateful!
