What are you grateful for today?

thank you for moments like these

I am grateful for moments like this one

GRATITUDE unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. — Melody Beattie

Spread the love.  Leave a comment about what you are grateful for today.  I would love to hear about it.   🙂

    I’m grateful for Sunday rest! I just discovered http://stevemurrell.typepad.com/ and I’ve been reading his blog for the past five hours. I’m learning so much from him. He’s so humble and as a leader, focused on developing others. A role model for me.
