As October was coming to an end and I began to think ahead to November, the idea to be intentional about gratitude kept coming to my mind. We always take the time on Thanksgiving Day to express what we are thankful for, but I felt I needed to do more. So I plan for the month of November to keep a Gratitude Journal – not my original idea, I had heard of this before. I plan to look for ways through out the day to be grateful and write them in my journal at the end of the day. Some days I will share my thoughts in this blog and other days I probably will not.
Today, and everyday, I am grateful first for the love of my Heavenly Father who sacrificed His only Son for my salvation.
I am grateful to be married to my best friend. My husband, Adolph, is the love of my life and the very best husband, Dad, and Papa. I love you sweetheart.
I am grateful for my family – our daughters and son, their spouses and our grandchildren. They are all such a delight.
I am grateful that I still have my parents with me and cherish the time I am able to spend with them.
I am grateful for friendship. Friends that have shared in my life for years and new friends that I have met since I discovered blogland – you are all dear to me.
I hope you will take the time this month to reflect on what you are grateful for. And I would love for you to share your thoughts with me.
With A Grateful Heart,
ON THE MENU WEEK OF NOVEMBER 18TH
