The turmoil in our country. The global pandemic. Everything happening makes it seem as if our world has been turned upside down. As if we are being tested in some way. A test of resilience. A test of strength. A test of humanity.
In the midst of it all, we can always find something to be grateful for – no matter how dismal things can get. We may simply need to look harder on certain days but I guarantee that if you can do this, you will find something.
Today, I am grateful for my loved ones. My family who means everything and more. A partner who is solid and true. The wonderful people who have touched my life, one who passed from this world today and will be missed dearly. The friends who are there in good times and bad. My fur companion who reminds me that a wagging tail and unconditional love can brighten any and every day.
Though I’m always grateful for them, today I find myself even more so. They are what makes life special. They are what gets us through. They are where we find hope, inspiration and compassion.
What are you grateful for today?
