Thankful Thursday

As we have just moved into November, a number of bloggers are writing about gratitude. What is the technical definition of gratitude? Wikipedia defines it as, "Gratitude, thankfulness, gratefulness, or appreciation is a feeling, emotion or attitude in acknowledgment of a benefit that one has received or will receive."

For me it boils down to appreciating EVERYTHING I have in my life instead of focusing on problems or what I don't have. I have actually been working on applying this to my own life lately and it has been very uplifting.

Don't believe me that it feels good to express gratitude? Check out these articles:

So, every Thursday for the month of November I am going to write about things I am thankful for.

I am thankful for:
my wonderful husband
my amazing children
my health
the health of my husband and children
