Gratitude for a Wednesday

This morning I was standing in my doorway waiting for my ride. The sun was coming up over the houses across the street and I saw the yellow flowers blooming on the dandelions growing across my yard. They were beautiful even if they were just weeds. The sun's rays were glowing through the branches of the newly budded trees and I was thankful for the glorious morning I was enjoying. I started thinking about all the things I was grateful for. I have a home to live in - a roof over my head for protection. There is plenty of good healthy food in my kitchen waiting to be prepared. I have enough clothes to cover my body in between trips to the laundromat. I own a car even though it is currently not licensed to drive. A sweet cat purrs at my feet as he rubs against my legs and I have a job that I love to go to each day. My health is getting better every day with all the changes I have been able to make . I found myself content and happy and that is enough for me.

Are you grateful for what life has given you? 


  1. amen is good. we have so much to be thankful for :)

  2. thanks for the reminder that we really are so blessed...i am thankful for my family, a job i love, a home i adore...and then all the beauty in nature. i love those "a-ha" moments like you had where a sunrise or a gorgeous flower or someone's smile just makes us remember all the positives in life.
    and now you can add "new grandson" to your list! :)
