     Gratitude Puts Things Into Perspective

             by Moreah Vestan



Have you had moments or days when you felt inadequate or hopeless? So have I, and when I remember to, I choose to focus on gratitude. Even when I feel like I have nothing to offer, making a list of the good things in my life often lifts me out of the doldrums. I don’t need big things to be grateful. Here are some gratitude’s that remind me that things aren’t so bad.

Samples at Great Harvest Bakery, my daughter Katie’s lasagna, the new blue panties my friend Char brought, with soap and flowers, after my kidney surgery, foot rugs, balk rubs, being held. The joy of leaning and discovering via Google.

How could I stay in self-pity when I have so much to be thankful for! Lucky me!
