Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 22

Today I worked at being present by looking for the little things to be thankful for.

Today I was grateful for tea.

I am grateful tomato soup, after a long day, to warm me up.

I am grateful for the chance to run home for a few minutes this afternoon, and that I didn’t have to be trapped at work all day.

I am grateful for the scriptures.

I am grateful for Christmas music.

I am learning the gratitude is not fluff.  I am learning that it is the antidote to annoyance, frustration, and cynicism. The little positive thing I find to be thankful for in the day may not be as loud as the negative things, but they make a bigger difference than you might think.

What are you thankful for today?
