yesterday i had thought about writing a post about onions. it would have been riveting i promise you ;) and then on the drive home from work while crossing this bridge, i had an epiphany.

i am lucky. really really lucky. i have SO much to be thankful for. and i don't express my gratitude enough. sure i link up for thankful thursdays now and then, but how often do i stop and give thanks for what i have?

the answer to that friends is nowhere near enough. i take my life, my family, my husband, my dogs, my home, everything for granted.

i don't stop and give thanks for this face

or this one

or his love

or HIS love enough

so today i'm re-embracing my word for 2012.  


i will be more grateful in my every day life for everything i have. from my air conditioning, to the food in my fridge, to all the love i'm given.

i urge you to take a look around and give thanks for what you have. and for all the love you have in your life. hug the people and animals in your life more. say i love you and mean it. say thank you. let the people who are important to you that they make a difference.

be grateful for life.

i'm holding myself accountable on this blog to be more grateful and to take less things for granted.

Great post!! I'm not nearly grateful enough and I know it's something I need to work on. I am so blessed and I definitely (but not proudly) take it for granted.
