“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance,
chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast,
a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.”
Hey FFpeeps (I missed you on the riPcOrD, kYlE!)!
I hope you have an amazing day! I want to get back to grATTiTUde(funny how I always come back to that!...) I am grateful for the things I have, even when I can't see them. And, just because I can't see something, DOESN'T MEAN IT'S NOT THERE OR IT DOESN'T EXIST. Remeber when I was looking and looking and looking for a 4-leaf clover the past couple of weeks? I found it! (and it wasn't actually a real 4-leaf clover . . . it was my beautiful son, Max, wishing that he would find a 4-leaf clover...same same!)
And! and...and...(top secret information): I know I will see my 4-leaf clover when it's the right time, and I am grateful for it in advance! And my grattitude will pay it forward and make it happen sooner and help me see it faster!
Here's an amazing poem about gratitude. . .
Be thankful that you don’t have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don’t know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.
