A Day For Quotes ~Gratitude

After a trip to the grocery store yesterday my daughter was helping me put away the food.  She turned to me and said “wow Mama, there is hardly any more room in the fridge for more now”.  I told her we must be grateful that we have the means to put so much food in the fridge! 

Today I give you Gratitude.  Have a wonderful Sunday my friends!

Today and every day I am grateful for the health and love of my family, for being able to spend my days with my kids, for the support of my husband...for so many things!!

Blessings to you and yours :)

It is always so good to look at what is good in our lives. It can be so easy to see the bad over the good. It makes me stop and count my blessing often.
