G is for Gratitude



Sometimes in our busy lives we forget to be grateful for the things we have. Gratitude reminds us that  we have much to be grateful for.

I have a beautiful daughter who makes me proud of her. Who has gone back to college while working full-time,  raising a family, and keeping her marriage alive. Many of us would quit faced with the daily challenges of life. But she has persevered and will graduate in May.

I have three wonderful grandchildren who amaze me daily. The are constantly coming up with new and clever things. I love them dearly.

I have parents who are still active. And a brother and sister who love me. I have been surrounded by nieces and nephews. As well as my extended family of cousins and friends who have become like family.

I was blessed with the ability to tell stories and be able to write them so that others may read them. I also have relatively good health.

Then there is my winter haven. I am so grateful that I was able to find it. Nestled on an island on the Atlantic sea coast it has been an extraordinary place where I've found many friends.

Today I am grateful just to be alive.
