{an attitude of gratitude}

I had planned to abstain from blogging through the rest of the week but today these words rang through my ears. It has been years and years since I had heard them spoken but they came back to me at such an opportune time. I wanted to share them with you all. What a wonderful time to reflect.

"This is a wonderful time to be living here on earth. Our opportunities are limitless. While there are some things wrong in the world today, there are many things right, such as teachers who teach, ministers who minister, marriages that make it, parents who sacrifice, and friends who help.

We can lift ourselves, and others as well, when we refuse to remain in the realm of negative thought and cultivate within our hearts an attitude of gratitude. If ingratitude be numbered among the serious sins, then gratitude takes its place among the noblest of virtues."

~President Thomas S. Monson

Happy Thanksgiving to each of you and your families!
