When look at the date on the calendar, I am amazed that we now approaching the close of 2011. Time has moved seemingly at a blink of an eye. I began to think about the changes that have occurred in my life and the people that I have encountered in that time.
When you listen to the news it would seem that no good is happening in the world, but we all know that is not the case, however, we tend to gravitate naturally to the negative. I began to think of the changes both good and bad that have transpired from the close of 2010 to the birthing of 2011. I realized that I had not giving thanks for the little things in my life the build the foundation for the bigger things.
My Granny use to always tell me "a house built on a weak foundation can not withstand the shifts of change." As a child, I did not grasp the seed that she was planting, but as a seasoned adult it has become all to clear to me. So I am asking you to join me to give thanks at least twice a day: once as you rise, and again before you lay your head to rest. I will share my gratitude with you on my facebook page, and I hope you will share yours with me as well. If you want to keep a ledger, so that when you reach a challenging period in your life you can look back and keep things in perspective, please do! I would recommend a pocket notebook to keep by your bedside, and at the end of the year, take a gander and see what happens!
I hope you join me on the journey!
Enjoy the Fall
