Grateful for the Little Things...
November is my favorite time of the year not only because I was born this month but also because it’s a the time to count all of the many blessings that have been bestowed upon our lives. I once read that a grateful heart is not only a joyful heart but also content and what that means to me is before you complain or ask for more blessings you should always always always think about all of the good things you already have! I also think of this month as a time to reflect and take a trip down memory lane to see how far I’ve come from last year’s Thanksgiving.
It’s often a challenge to many including myself to keep in mind that tomorrow is never a promise so instead of living in regret or wishing you had done something different we should try to recall all of the many good things we have been given. Also this month try to remember that it’s the small pleasures that are the ultimate treasures! Here are a few small things in my life that make all the difference and for that I am very grateful:
and most importantly -LOVE-
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
