29 Days of Gratitude - THE FINAL ENTRY

Today I am thankful for GRATITUDE. I know I've mentioned it before, but I can't tell you how nice it has been waking up every morning and actively looking for something to blog about. I don't know, maybe now it will be easier to recognize my little blessings as they come instead of having to making myself realize what has been sitting in front of me for so long. I remember going to a fireside once where the speaker said that he drove to work every morning enduring a 40 minute commute each way. He decided that he would turn off the radio and during that morning commute he would think of things to be grateful for. I found it interesting that as he was doing this, he mentioned that it become a prayer of sorts and this morning ritual would lift his day so much. Whether it be something small (maybe insignificant to some) or obvious it really has made a difference in my day's outcome. I have found myself while not always cheerful, at least a little more pleasant. This whole project has really reinforced my gratitude for the Lord and all He blesses us with. Continually. Every little thing He has given us can be for our good and happiness. Thanks everyone for bearing with my blog!
