Take time to feel grateful!

“What you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it. Opportunities, relationships, even money flowed my way when I learned to be grateful no matter what happened in my life.”

– Oprah Winfrey


As I sit upstairs writing this post, I am absolutely engulfed in gratitude.  I just watched my husband and two teenage sons going off on a hike, walking up the road laughing and joking together.  Just in this moment – so much to be grateful for – a wonderful relationship with my two gorgeous sons; a loving relationship with my husband even after 23 years of marriage; a warm, comfortable home where I can write this and look out the window and see the sea; a healthy mind and body able to experience all this joy.  I find it is vital, to take a bit of time each day, just for a few minutes, no matter what I’m doing, and feel the gratitude for that particular moment, for the experience of whatever it is that is happening right in that snapshot of a second.

Oprah Winfrey is a wonderful source of ideas about gratitude.  I love reading  her messages:
