"This is a wonderful time to be living here on earth.
Our opportunities are limitless. While there are some things wrong in the world today, there are many things right, such as teachers who teach, ministers who minister, marriages that make it, parents who sacrifice, and friends who help.
We can lift ourselves, and others as well, when we refuse to remain in the realm of negative thought and cultivate within our hearts an attitude of gratitude.
If ingratitude be numbered among the most serious sins, then gratitude takes its place among the noblest of virtues."
Here are some things I am greateful for:
-My family, with all of our eccentricity and variety.
-The gospel of Jesus Christ
-The knowledge that God loves me.
-The opportunity I have to work at home with the job that I have.
-The physical health I enjoy so much.
Those are some of the big ones, but each day there are simple things and tender mercies that I am grateful to God for. Like:
-When J gave me a hug this morning.
-The little boy who kept yelling "I am a Child of God" and making me laugh.
-The steak and A-1 I had for dinner.
-That my headache is gone.
I will try to be more grateful for these small and simple things each day.
What are you grateful for?
