I found this quote online, but couldn't find who originally wrote it.  I textured this photo with the Kim Klassen texture simple.

I found this quote yesterday and it really hit home.  I have a very good life, but some days it is easier to complain rather than be grateful for things in my life.  From the weather to the grumpy clerk at the grocery store, there is plenty I could complain about.  

However, I noticed on the days when I start seeing the good and say a mental thank you, I start seeing even more to be thankful for.    Then I recognize, really recognize, my life is full of things to be grateful for.

Today I am linking up with Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds.  

Have a great weekend!

  7. Sometimes we have to choose to be thankful as it's so easy to just take things for granted....or least it is for me...Such a beautiful sunny flower...Have a great weekend..

  8. I always say if the only prayer we say is "thank you"...that is enough...yes, I do believe that most of us are blessed with many gifts...we just have to see them...
