Focusing on gratitude daily helps me stay optimistic in difficult times. Today I am grateful for having had twenty five years of being Michael's mother, for all the joy as well as the difficult times that brought. I am grateful for having a life partner who loves me, values our relationship, and makes me laugh often. I am grateful for my two smart, beautiful, loving daughters who know the value of having a strong family and good friends. I am grateful for my two intelligent, dependable, and caring son-in-laws who would go to the ends of the earth for almost anyone. I am grateful for my brother who is there for me in so many ways, always. I am grateful for my friends and my extended family for sharing themselves with me. I am grateful for the people in my community for caring so much about each other and valuing connection. What are you grateful for today?
