In women's conference last weekend I went to a class about gratitude taught by Bob Quinn, who I am so privileged to know. In his class we talked about gratitude and how important it is, and how we can incorporate it into our lives. He encouraged us to write in our journals every morning, beginning with "I am grateful for..." or keep a special journal just about gratitude. He also suggested we share it with those we love in the hopes that it will help those who read them find greater joy and appreciation for life. So, as of now, I am going to try to keep my gratitude journal on my blog, and actually post them. :)
Today I am grateful for the safety of my family and friends. Many people I know, including my dad, have been traveling in the southern mid-west in the past week, and although they have been close to the destruction caused by the tornadoes in that area, they have been kept safe. The weather here in my hometown has also been less than ideal, but we have been spared any real danger, and I am grateful for that as well.
I am also grateful for my family. No matter how I feel or act, my family is always there for me to help me and lift me up. I am so blessed to have such a supportive family who loves me and each other despite our differences of personality and temperament. I am so thankful for the love that I share with my family and that it can last through eternity through the saving grace of our Lord.
