I decided today I would take a very serious moment to honor myself. Not in an egotistical way but in an extremely grateful way.

It seems lately as I tune in to both the daily news and my surroundings, there is one horror story after another, one struggle after another.

  • armed robberies
  • missing children
  • murdered children
  • natural disasters
  • personal struggles
  • addictions
  • accidents
  • unemployment
  • rage
  • violence
  • bullying
  • and the list goes on . . .

Now I have my to do list and I take my dreams, goals and purpose seriously. But when I take a look at what I have, physically, emotionally, financially, spiritually and personally and I then take a look at some of the struggles others are faced with, some quite horrific, but all just as important to the person experiencing the struggle, my list pales in comparison.

And while I don’t mean to dismiss my Personal To Do List of Goals as trivial, I would like to take a moment to acknowledge and express gratitude for the blessings that have been bestowed upon me, the good health and the Good Lord watching over everything I do.

It’s easy to take blessings for granted when they are thankfully the norm in your life. I don’t ever want to undermine my gratitude for all I have and for all that I’m able to do.

Thank you GOD. I take thee not for granted. I am seriously grateful for everything and just want to express that gratitude.
