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.
