I have to get up at 5:00 every morning in order to get to Sarah's house to take care of Kate so Sarah can make it to school on time. I could look at that as a burden and for some people it would be, but thank God I am a morning person. And look below at what I have waiting for me!
I saw a guest on Jimmy Fallon, Terry Crews, who said gratitude is the key to a happy and successful life. That really impressed me especially because Terry is a black man from Flint, Michigan. Gratitude energizes us whereas anger and fear suck energy out of us he said.
I will look for things to be grateful for today. It's not that hard for me. I have been given so much. Thank you, Lord for all the gifts you have given me. Especially you Kate plus my kids and all my grand kids. You too Barb.
