Gratitude = Grateful Attitude

The older I get the more I recognize the importance of attitude. And that my attitude is something that I can control. At this time of the year we concentrate on being grateful and seeing the farmers harvesting their crops we have an example of God's provision. I've been trying to have a grateful attitude everyday in all seasons, not just this one where we are reminded to be thankful.  No matter my circumstances I can strive to have a thankful attitude. Also, I've been trying to be specific in my gratitude thoughts. It is so easy to say "Thank You, God, for everything" and I am thankful for everything, but I think I need to look at the small pictures in the practice of being thankful. I am thankful for my husband Danny who loves me, I am thankful for our daughters who are so precious to us. I am thankful for our sons-in-law who love our girls and work so hard to provide for them and their children. I am thankful for the grace shown to me most especially from God but also from people who extend their grace to me. I am thankful for tea, for peanut butter, for heating pads, for computers and for kitties. I am thankful that I live where the seasons change and the weather is rarely boring...(well except in the summer when it is too hot for too long, I have to work on that one)
