SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: I am thrilled and so thankful to make this announcement about an extra special early Christmas gift: My third granddaughter was born on December 15th, at 8:30am and weighed in at 8 lbs. 4 oz., and measured 21.5 inches long. And of course, she’s adorable!
Me with my beautiful new granddaughter,
This is a good time of year to focus on blessings and gratitude.
This excerpt, from Karl Moore’s 18 Rules of Happiness on being grateful, is especially relevant!
“Think of all the wonderful things you have to be grateful for right now. It could be your family. Or your health. Maybe your home. Your friends. Your brain. Your heart. Your spirit.
We’ve all got amazing things in our own lives that make us smile with joy. And if we can count these blessings every day, we’ll discover a greater appreciation of the beautiful world we surround ourselves with.” –Karl Moore
“If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life
is thank you,
it will be enough.”
– Meister Eckhardt
I have noticed a difference in my overall attitude toward life ever since I began my nearly daily posting of an “Attitude of Gratitude” on Facebook in November 2013 or so. It definitely helps to focus on the positive by counting your blessings!
And I am blessed to have this beautiful new granddaughter, an early Christmas present to her family (my youngest daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughters) and all of us who love and care for her and her parents and sisters!
So what are YOUR thoughts?
Do you find it easy or difficult to practice an attitude of gratitude?
Do you count your blessings on a regular basis?
