We have to be thankful!!

Gratitude is one of my secrets to staying happy, upbeat and positive. I bet I whisper, "thank you" under my breath 100 times a day. When I get up in the morning and my feet hit the floor, I say "thank you".

There are so many million things to be thankful for. Do the old-fashioned thing and make a list if you need to be reminded. Here's my shortlist: significant other, daughter, son, Kristi's kids Matt, Rusty and Bryant, sports, music, my guitar, my talent, St. Louis Cardinals, baseball, life, my health, love...and on and on and on.

Take time each day to give thanks. Don't just do it on Sunday or when you think about it. It will really get you on that next level of happy.

Peace and joy,

Thank you for this post. It's good for us all to be reminded that we need to show our gratitude and avoid negative energy.
Thanks also for posting that photo. It put a big smile on my face. How cute are those dogs?

Have a happy day

Quote of the year...

“Be not the judges of men, but love your brothers and sisters, and find ways to reach out to them in common goals and aspirations. Where there is love in common, the divisions of creed will melt away and reveal the true nature of man’s eternal destiny -- one of unity in purpose, to be perfect as the Father is perfect."
