I may be away for a couple of days this week because my sweet daughter will be here tonight or in the morning. I have not seen her for about a month and a half, and that was just briefly to pick up the dog(we met half way). I had already committed to sub on Tuesday, but we have plans to get some Christmas gifts in the works. Hopefully I will be posting some of those pictures. Now on to what I had prepared earlier.
I have been thinking and wanted to share some thoughts on "An Attitude of Gratitude". A couple of weeks ago I received a Gratitude journal from my Thanksgiving swap partner. This challenged me to really begin focusing on all that I have to be thankful for. I have begun to make a conscious effort to remember these things daily, and what I have found is that I am sensing a change in my attitude daily.
One night I was walking the dog, there was a slight breeze blowing, stars shining, and almost full moon. I suddenly found myself thinking how blessed I am to even be out walking around my neighborhood, I have good health, a loving family and an amazing and awesome God who love ME! This is a season for Thanksgiving and I am feeling truly overcome by "An Attitude of Gratitude". I encourage you to give it a try. Start that journal , focus those thoughts on how blessed you are and see what happens. Have a blessed evening. Jackie
