Pure & Simple Gratitude

As I sit here reflecting on this past year and everything that has could I NOT be thankful? With thanksgiving around the corner, of course gratitude and everything that it means is felt heavily within the air. It is just that time of year. And as I sit here tonight, I am feeling both very blessed and thankful. Not only for thanksgiving, but also for the simple fact that it is Friday and I can sleep in tomorrow! Plain and simple, I am so fortunate in every way possible. Not only for the "stuff" in my life, but more importantly for the relationships that surround me as well as for the sheer fact that I can sit here and feel sincere happiness. So many people in this world are clouded by sadness, struggle and hardship that I am so thankful for the fact that I can be and feel happy. May those people out there who are in those positions of hardship find strength and blessings along their journey to reaching a place of contentment and happiness. You will find it. I am so grateful for being healthy, that I have an amazing husband, that we share such a special bond and sense of teamwork and respect for one another. I am grateful for the relationship that we have built and continue to foster with each passing day. I am grateful for our families and friends who we love dearly and who mean the world to us. Thank you for being such wonderful pieces to our lives. Gratitude is an amazing thing...just when a person thinks they are down and out, try counting the things in your life that you are so thankful for. It's funny...about a minute ago I never felt this rich!
