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?
