Developing An Attitude of Gratitude – Day 217

I work hard at making this my motto in life. Sadly, I often fail. LOL. I try to be kind, but sometimes I lose my temper. I try to work hard, but sometimes I am too tired or too sore and have to sit down. I try to smile often, but I am often so focused that I forget to smile. I try to be honest, but sometimes find myself telling those little white lies blaming them on “being nice” or “saving face.” I try to stay loyal, but find myself overcome with distractions. I don’t really travel… I am mostly a home body. Maybe some day I will see Navoo, or New York City, or New Zealand, or England, or Greece. I love to learn new things, but often find myself stuck in a rut. I am working on being thankful but find myself grumbling. I think the only thing I am really successful at is love. I love my family. I love the Lord. I love the people I work with. I love my job that allows me to create. I love the Willamette valley where I live. I love music. I love my garden

Today I am thankful that today was my last day at CET for the week. I won’t really get to rest, but it will be the change of pace I will enjoy.

Today I am thankful for a couple of hours playing with Lenayah.

Today I thankful for the students who came to help with the parade float.

Today I am thankful that my husband did the dishes… and washed my truck so it’s ready for the parade.

Today I am thankful for my scripture study.

Today I am thankful for the partly cloudy day… and a livable temerature.

Today I am thankful for salad.

Now am thankful for rest…. time for bed.
