I'm grateful for my home and the excellent employment I had so as to pay for it. I am happy with what I have and that contentment is something to be grateful for. I don't aspire for more than I have at this time nor have I in my lifetime, in all truthfulness. I have earned what I have and I was given the strength and ability to achieve what I need. How could I ask for more personal possessions? I'm fed, clothed, and warm when the season is cold.
I have challenges both personal and in general as do we all. But I have the knowledge that these things can be managed and lessons can be learned. The operative words are "can be":-) It's up to me to know where my strength is.
I have family and friends and for both of those I am most grateful as those who have slogged along with me through the years know...from my blogs on birthdays and Mother's day.
Just a few paragraphs about gratitude. It is good to acknowledge gratitude and acknowledge where your abundance comes from. Not necessarily material abundance. To me, life is not about material abundance. It's about learning and growing both physically and spiritually and sharing.
