Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.
I saw the above quote on another Thanksgiving mailing this week and I admit, I wrote it down to use. I just love the quote! Every day can be Thanksgiving if we chose to let it. We are surrounded by beauty every day, no matter where we live. It’s how we chose to see that determines the beauty we see. We are surrounded every day by family and family is special, no matter the opinions each may have. If you have a family that loves you, count your blessings and love them back. We are surrounded by blessings every day, it’s whether or not you chose to count those blessings that can determine your altitude (attitude) for the day. Life is a gift; embrace it, celebrate it, and never take it for granted.
This Thanksgiving I am grateful for:
Family – I am blessed with a wonderful, loving husband, 4 children, and their spouses, and 7 grandchildren. Our home is full when everyone is here and our hearts are full all year round.
Health – I enjoy being active and celebrating the good health that I’ve been blessed with.
Friends – Close friends, long-time friends, exercise friends, Facebook friends; they all warm my heart and spirit.
My career – I am so blessed to love what I do and to be able to do it every day. I love the challenges, the inspiration, and the people I meet through my career as a photographer.
Horses – Anyone that knows me well, knows that I have an addiction to horses and specifically to the Shetland Ponies and Miniature Horses that we raise. I love that my world is full of ponies and horses and that I can enjoy them and share them with others to enjoy.
Country – I love living where I do and count my blessings every day that this is where God planted me.
God – My Savior, My Strength, and My Guiding Light.
What are you thankful for this year?
