Daily Gratitude

Today, I’m thankful for my life.

For the fact that I’m here. Living. Breathing. Experiencing. Loving. Working.

Last week, someone I knew eighteen years ago, died. It hit me surprisingly hard. He was a good man and a very dear friend to me. More like a surrogate father really.

We drifted apart and, now he’s gone, there will never be the chance to connect again. He leaves a loving and devoted wife, a son, two daughters and many grandchildren.

Christmas this year will be a sore time indeed and I shall be praying for them with my love on that day.

Today, I am thankful for my family.

My sweet adult children who have grown into the most wonderful adults. My beautiful granddaughter whom I adore so much, words simply can not express. I’m am blessed indeed.

Today, I am thankful for where I live.

I am blessed to have miles of countryside around my home. Just one house separates my us from the fields, which we walk the dogs through regularly.

On Saturday, I was returning from dropping my daughter at work just as the sun was rising. The sky was clear and the fog was rising above the fields. It was a beautiful sight so instead of going straight indoors when I got home, I felt compelled to go and stand in the fields and breathe in the fresh, crisp autumnal morning air. It was incredibly life affirming.

What are you grateful for?

Love
