Sunday, November 14
From November 6 until Thanksgiving, I'll be posting everyday, talking about someone or something I'm grateful for. I invite you to participate along with me. If you have a blog and will be participating, send me the link and I'll link back here. If you don't have a blog and there is a blessing you want to talk about, email me and I'll post it along with my daily blessing. I can even post it anonymously, if you'd prefer. There's something very powerful about focusing on what's right in our lives, and I intend to live this way, walking on the path of gratitude.
I have met people that made me wonder if they ever laugh, people who I wonder what series of circumstances resulted in their permanent scowl, what stole their smile and joy. It makes me sad to think about it, to think that life has been so hard for them that they find no enjoyment anywhere they look. In my own life, I feel like there is so much to be grateful for, so many little gifts to be unwrapped each moment and they often cause me to smile. But a real laugh? Sometimes I hold it in, for whatever reason. Next time, I think I'll give in and enjoy it. What makes you smile? What makes you laugh? If you can't think of anything, watch this video and hopefully you'll at least crack a smile. :)
