2. For the millions of books that have been written and printed on paper…I’m so thankful for moments like this.

3.  The love notes, sweet wishes, and kind words, all written down and tucked safely away. I’m so thankful for the hearts and the hands of the people who wrote these for me. They are my life.

cards and letters

These are just a few of the many things that I am thankful for today.

It’s important to stop…take a moment…and reflect on the good things in life.

Will you join me in counting the blessings on your journey through life?

Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”
