I intend to live my life practicing gratitude and kindness in honor of my angels.
Practicing gratitude is such a hard concept for me. It’s easy to say the words, but so hard to actually feel the gratitude. How can I feel grateful for what I have, when I consider the 3 lives that I have lost? Those losses feel so much bigger than anything I still have in my life. But I try….
…as I sit in traffic, I try to be grateful that I have a reliable car, a job to go to and a home to return to.
…as I am frustrated with the cost of groceries, I try to be grateful for the food that I am able to buy.
…as I am frustrated with bills at home, I try to be grateful for the comfort of my home.
…as I am frustrated at work, I try to be grateful I have a good job.
…as I am frustrated with those who don’t understand my pain, I try to be grateful that they have never experienced it.
