Thankful {every day}


My heart overflows with gratitude for the life I have been given.  Truly, I pinch myself regularly because it just seems unbelievable to me that my daily existence is filled with such beautiful love, good health and glorious abundance of food and breathtaking nature.  My complaints are few, for I realize how fortunate I am and it's not something I take lightly.  We have one life to live, and with every sunrise, I awaken with a thankful heart.

There shouldn't be just one designated day for giving thanks and reflecting upon all the goodness which fills our lives.  If we all made more of an effort to appreciate the good fortune which comes our way versus the focus of what isn't up to par, then I believe there would be more smiles in this world.  Let's give it a try, there is nothing to lose.  Here's to being thankful for each and every. single. day.

  8. loveliest.
    you nailed it. for every smile and scrape, a thank you is best said after. it's a silly, lovely ridiculous life most of us lead. we all have pains and problems; major! but it's part of the journey.....and the peaks and valleys make for the prettiest landscapes. so we might as well embrace and be grateful, no?
    i am crazy grateful for you dear friend.
    love,
    katie
