When a person doesn't have gratitude, something is missing in his or her humanity. A person can almost be defined by his or her attitude toward gratitude.
It's that time of year when we say "thanks" for all that we've received throughout the year. What am I thankful for?
In no particular order:
Our American Troops
My soon to be born granddaughter
My family (my mom, my sisters, my brother, aunts, uncles, inlaws, etc)
My Baby Boomer Women friends
My Baby Boomer Diva friends
My Myspace friends
My writing friends
My Blog friends
My new computer
My husband's technical computer abilities
The beautiful planet Earth
The inventor of the Alphasmart Dana
My pets' vets
My gift for writing
The time I have to write
The time I have to spend with my family
My new screened in back patio
Each beautiful new day
My ability to see, even though I have to wear glasses, I can still see the colors in the world
My ability to hear the birds in the trees and a child's laugh
My ability to touch, so I can still hold my husband's hand
My ability to walk, even though I was in a wheelchair four years ago.
Today is my birthday. And I am grateful for one more candle on my birthday cake.
