It is always easier to focus on what we don’t have and want than to see all the riches that we do have. So about a year ago I decided that I would deliberately focus each day on at least one thing that I was thankful for. I tried keeping a journal next to my bedside to remind me to write each evening about that one thing that was wonderful that day.
Walks in the afternoon with little Suzy are a time where I can clear my mind and focus on the things that I am thankful for. Now I am keeping a gratitude journal on my I-pad. I have to admit that there are days when I forget to write, but I forgive myself and try to remember the next day.
Bryce encouraged me to tweet my gratitude to the Love Odyssey site, so during the next year I will be doing just that. I hope that this will inspire my readers to do likewise. It is so easy to get bogged down in the things that didn’t go right in our life that we often forget all the blessings that are given us each day. I am truly thankful for so much in my life!
