Find something to be grateful for daily

“My new year’s resolution in 2018 is to foster a spirit and attitude of gratitude. After posting “thankful” messages each day in November on Facebook, I realized that I need to expand that practice year-round. Inspired also by the book, One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp, I purchased a journal to keep an ongoing list of things I am grateful for. Hopefully, by the end of the year, I can look back and savor all the beauty and gifts I’ve been blessed with. There is always, always something to be thankful for.” Your health improves with gratitude, too.
