Resist the urge to dwell on things that bring you down for they will surely color your day and blind you to your goals and dreams.

Today, I am grateful for breath, for a beating heart and for life that I might bring goodness to the world. I am grateful for the example set by those who have gone before me, for laughter of good friends and tears that wash away all pain.

I am grateful for summer flowers that succumb to frost for now, but will be reborn in the glorious spring. I am grateful for the changing seasons that remind me that there is a time for everything whether I recognize it or not.

I am grateful for family that keeps me strong, for community that that supports its members and for spider webs that glisten in the sun.
