Attitude of Gratitude Day 22, 23 & 24

I’m grateful for peaceful, joyous family gatherings and that no matter how long it’s been since we’ve seen each other or how short the visit, we pick up where we left off and maximize every moment.

I’m grateful for Thanksgiving leftovers- breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

I’m grateful for proper perspective as the Christmas shopping season (and media blitz) takes off full steam.

Attitude of Gratitude Day 20 & 21

I’m grateful for my Dad. As I age, I see more and more of his face as I gaze into the mirror and I find myself repeating and acting on little nuggets of his wisdom. I know there are many good men in this world (my husband being one of them) but I like to think when God created my Dad he broke the mold.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to say “Thanks” -not just on tomorrow for Thanksgiving or for the month of November but every single day in word and in deed.

Attitude of Gratitude Days 16, 17 & 18

I’m grateful for the miracle of birth and precious newborn babies because they often help change perspectives and renew relationships.

I’m grateful for weekends, holidays and the opportunity to spend time with the ones we love the most.

I’m grateful for my husband’s instincts behind the wheel and good brakes…nothing like traveling on Interstate 95 through northern Virginia.

Attitude of Gratitude Day 13 & 14

I am grateful for life’s delays and detours (traffic delays and detours? Still working on that one) because through them often come the greatest opportunities and the most unexpected blessings.

I’m grateful for friends who make me laugh, feel my pain, tell me the truth, challenge my thinking and love me flaws and all.

Attitude of Gratitude Day 11

I’m grateful for those men and women who have and are currently serving in military service. I’m also grateful to the families of those service members. We owe you such a debt of gratitude. To my dad, my grandfathers, my uncles and cousin thank you for serving your country and enriching the lives of our family. I’m an extremely grateful Air Force brat.

Attitude of Gratitude Day 9

Today I celebrate the birth of the woman who gave me life. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!
My mom is one of God’s greatest blessings to me. I’m so grateful for her love, her prayers, her encouragement, and her listening ear. I’m grateful for her example of a godly woman, wife and mother. I grateful that though we’re miles apart she is only a phone call away.
