Attitude of Gratitude

Friend:
“Do you want some help painting tonight?”
Me:
Gratitude for the friends in my life who ask me if I need help painting.
Mom:
“Are you going to be at the new house tonight?”
Me:
Gratitude to have a mom who will come and hang out and help when there is no comfort or food to offer her in a stripped out house.
Friend:
“Hi Ci!”
Me:
Gratitude for a freind rounding a corner, waking up, and seeing him in his eyes.
Children:
“Hi Mom I just wanted to tell you…”
Me:
Gratitude my children need me to know about the every day of their lives.
Grandchildren:
“Mamo I love you much!”
Me:
Gratitude for more love than I know what to do with.
Husband:
“My life is perfect as long as you’re with me”.
Me:
Sigh.   Love.   Gratitude.
Thank you.
