Thank-you. Thanks. Merci. Gracias. Danke… so many ways to say thank you.
So much of life is really determined by our attitude. Do we complain or are we grateful? Do we pay attention to the beauty that surrounds us, the sunrise and sunset, the flowers, the ocean, all of God’s creation. Do we say thanks to our families and friends? Do we pay attention?
Here are 3 simple things we can do to make a better day
Wake up and give thanks
Notice the blessings around us and make a list – A Grateful/Thankful list
Choose to be Grateful
Things for which I’m grateful-
To wake up each day
My husband and kids
My sister, Mother, and brother
My Puppy Sashie
Friends at church and other areas of my life
To live in a Free country – (that we are celebrating this week )
Music- to listen, to sing, to create
My home and neighborhood
Jesus and His saving grace
My car and ability to drive and travel
This is just the beginning, the list goes on. You may find that when you write it down, your blessings list will overflow.
It is our choice. We can choose to be grateful for all these things. We can choose to tell those we love how much we appreciate them. We can choose to be grateful in all circumstances… or not.
