All day today, I have been musing on those things I am grateful for. There are many. So one would think it would be easy to line up twenty-two for the twenty-two days leading up to Thanksgiving (November 22). Perhaps that is the problem? Or is a dilemma? Or perhaps a paradox? So there you go. Settling on twenty-two may be an issue and as soon as that occurred to me, it became clear:
I am grateful for the cornucopia of bounty I have been blessed with.
Having so many things to be grateful for is cause for gratitude in itself. And in addition to that, I am grateful for the awareness this discipline of the gratitude journal is affording me. And its only Day 2.
"Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings." ---William Arthur Ward
