Gratitude

Standing Out_

Gratitude is not a natural state. At least not for me. Waking every morning, an hour early, and spending those first waking moments writing down the things that I am grateful for…cozy socks, hot coffee, my grandsons laugh, a new pen, my pillow…I could go on for paragraphs (just check out my Instagram feed if you don’t believe me), this practice has changed so much for me.

It forces me to every day look at whatever might be happening and ask, “What about this is good? Sometimes it’s not easy and it comes down to the tiniest thing but it’s proof that the little things really do make a difference.

It keeps me in the present and reminds me that each moment is a gift and not to be taken for granted.

“Give thanks in everything; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18.
