There are days when being grateful is so simple. As the Rodgers and Hammerstein song says,
Oh what a beautiful morning, Oh what a beautiful day, I’ve got a wonderful feeling, Everything’s going my way.
But, then there are those days when it seems absolutely nothing is going right.
It is during those times that we need to hold fast to the knowledge that there is always, always something to be grateful for.
Those blessings can be difficult to identify or acknowledge when times are tough, but they are there. They may be as simple as the warmth of the sun, the grace and beauty of a butterfly, or that today’s commute was a bit easier than yesterdays. Or, they could be more profoundly meaningful blessings that may not show themselves until later.
By keeping our hearts and minds open to appreciation, we are more apt to see those blessings which in turn, allows us to deal with those days (or even weeks and months) that are a challenge.
May you have a day filled with gratitude and good things.
