An attitude of gratitude

Posted on Mon, Oct 29, 2012 at 10:47 AM

I may not show it as much as I should, but I am so thankful for my life and those who are in it. I have people in my life who I know I can count on for anything, at any hour. I have people who believe it me more than I believe in myself. I've always been blessed and it scares me because I don't know why or how or when it will end. For now maybe I'm just lucky. But I look at the lives of others and I don't understand how so much misfortune, bad luck and sadness has hit them, and seems to have grown to be a part of them. How is it that I can be so blessed while others have it so rough? I can't imagine what that's like, but I know eventually my luck will run out too, and I don't know what I'll do. I know I have to appreciate things more and tell my loved ones how much they mean to me. Nothing and no one is forever. Love and light. —Always Grateful
