“Grant me daily the grace of gratitude, to be thankful for all my many gifts, and so be freed from artificial needs, that I might lead a joyful, simple life.”

~ Edward Hays

I just wanted to affirm how deeply grateful I am each and every day for the many gifts God has given me. I could have a “woe is me day“, or a “why me” day, or complain about this, that and everything …… but I will NOT!!


For I have friends that are truly suffering ….. in pain and agony, fighting with each breath, with each heart beat to SIMPLY stay alive. Do you think they are worried about anything political? Do you think they are thinking about making signs and marching in protest, or celebrating a victory over a foe? I can assure they are NOT. Some may be in a coma, some are praying until it hurts …… just for extra time with their loved ones.

I was given an amazing gift …. the gift of life and with that gift I was given something special ……. a heart filled to the brim with God and with gratitude.

I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL, not just today, but every day ……. and that heart is FILLED is also filled with LOVE!

I’m sending some love to YOU and may God Bless you!
