Gratitude is the Attitude | July 28, 2019

A wise woman once told me:

“When you wake up in the morning — before you get out of bed — think of 5 (or 10!) things that you’re really grateful for.”

(I think 10 is a bit of a stretch.)

That simple advice, changed my attitude. And my life.

We have so much to be grateful for, especially me:

1. For your support, strength and caring…

2. Your smart, sensitive advice…

3. The compassion you share so generously…

4. All of your kind, wise encouragement…

5. Your never-ending love and dedication…

You are MY godsend…today, tomorrow and always.
