Do you have gratitude in your attitude?

Last Update: September 20, 2019
  • This is something I have been thinking about recently as I have a lot of things going wrong in my life. My wife has terrible health, I have terrible health, my financial picture is terrible, but I do have a lot to be grateful for.
    • I woke up this morning and was able to hear the birds singing.
    • I have a wonderful and beautiful wife that I love all my heart.
    • I have a wife that absolutely loves and adores me.
    • I haven't found it necessary to take a drink in 28 years.
    • I haven't been to jail in 38 years.
    • I have friends today that love me.
    • I can stand with my head held high instead of always having my head hung low.
    • I am part of a community that I love.
    • I have my own business that if it fails I only have myself to blame, nobody else
    • I am proud of myself.
    • I have finally learned how to love myself.

      I know that I have many more things to be grateful for but maybe you guys could add some of your's jog my failing memory. I also have not figured out how to straighten out my bullet points yet LOL.
      Donnie

Sometimes it can be difficult to be alert to all the things that we can be thankful for, but I think you are doing a great job, like I have heard so many times that "we have to love ourselves before we can love somebody else."

We should all be thankful for what we do have Donnie. Yes, some that are better off than you both in health and wealth, but on the other hand others are a lot worse off.

I am always thankful at the start of a new day. At 75 I am still able to walk and stand although it is sometimes in pain from arthritis.

Well said, Donnie.
We have so much to be grateful for.
For me having two wonderful daughters and about to celebrate 32 years of marriage with my amazing wife in December.
Having a roof over my head, food on the table, a car to drive and some finance in the bank.
I am blessed.
Thanks for sharing today.
Darren :)

We all have something to be very grateful for.

The most I am grateful for is still being alive after my life took a hard turn and brought me here.
