So, in keeping with the Gratitude spirit, I feel I must share with you those things I am most grateful for.
I am grateful for my family. Even though they leave me piles of laundry and sinks full of dirty dishes, I can't imagine my life without them. I'm even thankful for all the chaos that comes with having five extremely loud and incredibly active boys, because without the chaos, all I'd have is a quiet, lonely house.
I'm grateful for my husband's job. Even though he works long hours at times, I'm thankful he is able to support our family so I can stay home, raise our children, and pursue my own dreams and aspirations.
I'm grateful for imagination, inspiration, creativity, art, and books.
I'm grateful for humor, smiles, and kind hearted people.
I'm grateful for beautiful sunsets that cause the world to stand still for a small moment.
I'm grateful for the sound of the ocean, the calming influence of the ebb and flow of the tide.
I'm grateful for music. I think the world would be a very dull place without it.
I'm grateful for knowledge and truth, and my own journey to find knowledge and truth (in a religious sense).
Lastly, I'm thankful for the stories that fill my mind. That beg to be told. For the characters who rattle around in my brain and fill me with thoughts and emotions. But most of all, I'm thankful to be a WRITER.

So, tell me, are you a positive person? How happy are you on a daily basis? What are you grateful for?
