GRATITUDE

gratefulGratitude is a word that you seldom hear anymore!
I have had the opportunity to reflect on my life and with overwhelming emotion I want to express my gratitude to my parents for raising me to be the person I am today! They have given me love and strength to be the best person I can be.

I want to express my gratitude to the woman I share my life with! She fills my soul with love, when she touches me so gently and the joy I feel when she smiles and laughs out loud could fill up the whole world.

I want to express my gratitude to my children for shining in my eyes and for making me so proud to see them grow into caring and loving adults.

I want to express my gratitude to my grandchildren for lighting up my life and making me remember we are all children inside.

I want to express my gratitude to my friends for always being there through the tough times and listening to me no matter how I am feeling.

Most of all I want to express my gratitude to myself, for never giving up on my dreams, believing in all that is good and allowing it to shine from within.

Always knowing that I am blessed with the gift to touch others, I wanted everyone to know how grateful I am to all those who have touched my life and soul throughout the years.

I am grateful to be here, and everyday is a blessing…!!!  What are you grateful for?
