A Valentine's Day of Gratitude

Gratitude has been on my mind a lot lately. Here I am in a warm house with all my family safe and sound, good friends to visit with, good work to keep my mind nimble, and plenty of food in the cupboard.

My heart goes out to those people who are having such tragic times right now. I'm sure they're having a tough time feeling gratitude for anything, but I hope that each of them has something - some little piece of their lives that will help sustain them, and for which they are grateful.

Since you are here, reading this post, you are probably not one who just lost your home to a tornado - and you are probably not one who just lost a loved one in the latest murderous rampage. But you may have something that troubles you and makes life less than what you desire.

Today, take time out and think about the other things - the things that give you joy. Make it a Valentine's Day gift of love for yourself to have gratitude. I promise, you can go back and think about those other things tomorrow if you still want to.
