My mom taught me a great many things. How to use a semi-colon. That Cool Whip topped with chocolate syrup makes a dandy dessert. To approach life with an attitude of gratitude, no matter what curveballs are thrown your way.
My mom had poor health for as long as I can remember, but she was the most grateful person I’ve ever known. It’s an attribute I strive to emulate and pass onto my own children. Sure, it’s been a rough year. Actually, it’s been a rough few years. But there is still so much to be grateful for every single day, and I am blessed beyond measure in so many ways.
So as we prepare to tuck into the Thanksgiving feast, I’m taking the time to count those blessings and to share the things for which I’m grateful.
The fact that I can get out of bed every morning.
This wonderful community of writers and readers.
Of course, that’s just the short list. There are a gazillion other things for which I’m thankful, which is yet another reason to be grateful.
How about you, my friends? What are you thankful for during this season of gratitude and beyond?
