A Thankful Heart


"Saying thank you is more than good manners. It is good spirituality."
~Alfred Painter

I have so much to be grateful for, and today is especially good. It's sunny. My Mom's in town and we have a fun day ahead of us. The souffle I made last night puffed up well. We're healthy and blessed and warm. Thank you.

I want to bring a practice of gratitude into my life. I like to think of three things I'm grateful for at the end of each day. It's transformative.

It's so important to reflect everyday. I'm thankful I wake up every morning and look forward to the day ahead no matter how hectic. I'm happy just to be chosen to be here on this earth.
