"Praise the bridge that carried you over." - George Colman

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving 2010 and it has been a year since I started this gratitude blog! Even though I missed some days I am grateful that I decided to keep at it. There are many things that I wrote that I will appreciate in the future when I look back at this blog. I appreciate that I attempted to do it everyday. I am so grateful for the life I have and the family and friends that surround me!

"One can pay back the loan of gold, but one dies forever in debt to those who are kind." - Malayan Proverb

I am grateful for reprieves! We were suppose to have a big time blizzard here and it was going to hit by the afternoon. Thank goodness we had a reprieve and as of right now it is only snowing a little. We had time to run all of our errands and make sure we have all the Thanksgiving shopping done. Thank you weather : )

I am grateful for beautiful winter days. It is so pretty to see the snow coming down. Of course I like it better when I am able to stay in the house and not drive in it : )

I am grateful for small pleasures, sitting and relaxing, enjoying the sunshine,

I am grateful for the blessing of contentment. That is not an easy one for me so when I have it I really appreciate it! A sense of contentment helps to to feel more at peace and I enjoy what life has to offer and that is a great way to be.

"The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you." - John Southard

I am grateful for loving service that is extended to people throughout the world with no thought of praise or glory. I hope to be able to add to this service by extending my hands to help those in need whenever it is necessary.
