Day 3- Gratitude

 

“The real gift of gratitude is that the more grateful you are, the more present you become.”

-Robert Holden

Gratitude is such small but powerful tool. We have so much in which to be thankful. Sometimes people think of material items: houses, cars, and jobs. Our families often come to mind and we are appreciative for the memories that we share with them. Yet every moment offers a chance for thankfulness.

This morning, I completed my morning ritual of brushing my teeth and washing my face. Being able to complete my morning duties means that God has blessed me with a sound mind. I think and I can do. He gave me the gift of movement as I was able to move my legs, arms, and head freely.  He allowed me to have glasses to help with my sight. I had money to purchase the toothpaste and toothbrush that I used. I woke up and my house was warm and my lights worked. I don’t know how many breaths I took, but were effortless. My morning ritual gave so many opportunities for gratitude. Opportunities that every one did not have when they woke up this morning.

  2. Beautiful words today! Have you read “The Magic”? It takes gratitude one step further. I am reading it and it has definitely brought more joy and blessings into my life — all an extension of gratitude. Check it ou!
