Gratitude Transforms The Ordinary

A very long day!
Thankful for a time to rest.
Too tired to think.
Thankful for a warm bed and a roof over my head.
Too tired to write.
Thankful for inspiring thoughts already on paper, to cut and paste for you:

“It is a delicious moment, certainly, that of being well-nestled in bed and feeling that you shall drop gently to sleep. The good is to come, not past; the limbs are tired enough to render the remaining in one posture delightful; the labor of the day is gone.”
~ R. Leigh Hunt

“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”
~ William Arthur Ward

“Thankfulness removes the rust from the mind, lubricates our inward machinery, and enables us to do our work with fewer creaks and groans. It has the power to change a community, to promote health and morality, change attitudes, change situations, and change us! Thankful people live longest here on earth, and afterward in our hearts.”
~ Author Unknown

“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”
~Thornton Wilder

    1. Thanks James :o)
      Will have more "thank you" thoughts almost daily... would love to have you join us, and share your thoughts now and then if you like.

  2. If you look around enough there are always things to be grateful for. No, I'm not being sappy, I have a chronic illness, two of my friends have cancer. Yet I know where I'm going, my friends know where they are going, and we know that this world is temporary.
    See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him.
    1 John 3:1 (NLT)
