Developing and Attitude of Gratitude – Day 25

Today has been a bit of an usual day.  It started with aches and pains that made it hard to feel motivated to get out of bed.  I eventually got the energy to power through the discomfort and grabbed clean underclothing and headed to the shower.  One problem.  They were NOT clean, those pesky underclothing.… Continue reading Developing and Attitude of Gratitude – Day 25

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 23 and 24

It's been a couple long days and I have not been able to get to my computer to recognize my grateful things.

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 21

Today was an other long day... lessons, school, rehearsals, and a band concert.  Still... being a long day didn't mean there weren't little miracles here and there. Today I am grateful that when I came home there were a few Christmas decorations up, thanks to my oldest daughter making time to hang them. I am… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 21

Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 15

Many years ago, when my oldest children were little, we didn't have much.  We barely were able to meet our bills and feed our family.  The holiday season wasn't a joyous season.  It was a stressful season.  The materialism of Christmas was overwhelming.  Then, a lovely family introduced us to St. Nicholas Day.  From that… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 15
