It is November and it is time for stopping and giving thanks. I try and keep an attitude of gratitude always, but some days are easier than others. This year has been especially tough in this area. Being so sick and in so much pain left me weak and helpless and barely able to handle anything. Finding gratitude and praise during a this storm has often escaped me. Anger and confusion take over my emotions. Fear overwhelms me. But, I am learning to take life one day at a time. Its not easy. I am working at it. Consciously working at finding the positive. And when you find one tiny thing to be grateful for, soon enough you find more and more things in life to be thankful for.
So today I am thankful for one thing. Its small, but really, its not. I am thankful for life. For breathing. For experiencing all that is precious and fleeting. For the opportunity to exist in this world. Even on days when getting dressed is a feat, I am here. Living, breathing, and trying to grow.
Please join me in a month of gratitude. Its easy. Post on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, a journal, a napkin even. Stop and pause. Please feel free to share your gratitude with me. I would love to hear and learn from you. In fact, I will give away a nice prize package at the end of the month, drawing a name from all the gratitude comments left on my blog during November.
thankful for you and thanks for stopping by!
