simple tastes and mind content."
I think that stopping to give thanks is a way of humbling ourselves in order to view the blessings in our lives as a true gift and not something that we are owed. Not everyone has the same gifts. I want to remind myself that there are people who do not have the luxuries of my "problems". There is always someone who has it more difficult than me. I have known my share of pain and loss, but I have also been given a life filled with spectacular treasures in the people who surround me, the opportunities that have been given to me and the overall life that I live. I need this reminder so that I can be truly grateful!
The five things I am thankful for are:
1.) Little Chick and my family.
2.) Friends, both new and old, that are there for me and love me unconditionally.
3.) My ability to evaluate my actions and try to improve when and where I can.
4.) My never ending strength to get through things, no matter how difficult or how alone I might be.
5.) Rain after a long dry spell and for puddles that Little Chick can have fun jumping in to!
