I am Grateful
As I sit here writing this post my feet are in a bucket of ice water, because they are so swollen from walking – I am grateful. I am so grateful I can walk. I am grateful that I am finished with using a wheelchair. I am grateful that I had a wheelchair when I needed it. It was such a blessing; recently, I passed that blessing on to someone else. I am grateful for being in the position to bless another.
No matter the situation I find myself in, I look for the blessing in it. Sometimes I do not understand why something has happened, but I do know there is a reason and that reason is a blessing. I am grateful for the ability to find the blessings and/or have the knowledge that there is a blessing in this even when I cannot see it.
When I’m having a hard day, I stop and quickly write down what I’m grateful for that day. I always number the list, because it makes me happy to have a count of my blessings. I usually use a small piece of scratch paper, then fold it up and place it in my pocket. Throughout the day, I pull out my gratitude list and read it. It always makes me feel better.
Have you counted your blessings lately? What are you grateful for this day?
Life is good! God is great! All is well in my world.
