Being Grateful for the Life we have

How often do we truly pause to appreciate the life we have?  Today is that day.  After looking at the enormous devastation in Japan and the worst disaster in decades, it is so appropriate for us to refocus and be grateful for the blessings we have.
Today I’m humbly grateful for all the people and family in my life, for the comfort of my home, my health, my pets, and the ability to earn an income.  I’m grateful for the sunshine and nature all around me.  I’m even grateful for all the disappointments that have deepened my purpose, enriched my soul and directed my path. I’m grateful that my mind allows me to grow and learn and embrace the best of attitude ~ with love instead of hate.  I’m grateful for this computer so I can share with others what gives my heart a sense of meaning. And I’m grateful for the ability to enjoy it all again tomorrow. If disaster teaches us anything, it teaches us to be grateful for what we have and to enjoy life today.  Japan will rebuild just like we did after 2001.  I hope we can all find a way to help.
Today be grateful, help others, give your love and enjoy life and have a beautiful day.
