seem to go hand in hand but I want to have an attitude of gratitude year round and I am starting that resolution now and not in January.

One of my favorite quotes is: "To express gratitude is gracious and honorable; to enact gratitude is generous and noble; but to live with gratitude ever in our hearts is a touch of heaven." -President Thomas S. Monson

And I loved this one I just read yesterday: "Be thankful for the setbacks because they come from the same place as the blessings." -Gabby Reece's high school Bible teacher Mr. Strickland

I have a lot to be grateful for, I know that. I try hard not to take them for granted, but I know with some of them I do - I'll be working on that.

Things I'm Grateful For
(in no particular order)

*Our humble lair
*My man clan
*My awesome family near & far
*My heritage
*Puppy love
*My eye sight
*Friends that accept me and "the season" I'm in
*A Heavenly Father that loves me
*Pure maple syrup
*My whirlwind days
*Belly roll laughing
*Modern medicine & medical professionals
*Double armed tight hugs
*Roaring fires
*Snow angels
*The seasons
*Positive & inspiring people

It's the small things that mean the most and bring gratitude, things that money can't buy are the true blessings! I love you and your positive attitude.
