Being Grateful

Life.

It’s up and down and fun and scary and nice and horrible and busy and exciting!

During this season, take time to write down what you are grateful for. Enjoy the small moments. Tell people you love them. Smile at a stranger. Give grace to those who seem angry and unhappy. Pray for the hurt and lonely. Don’t take anything or anyone for granted. Spend time with your husband, kids, family, friends. Call someone to talk about anything and everything. Write a letter to a friend. Give more. Love more. Live more!
