What Are You Grateful For Today ~

 What separates privilege from entitlement is
 gratitude.  Wear gratitude like a cloak, and 
it will feed every corner of your life...

When they say life is not fair some people sure know
 exactly what this means  Yesterday Arvid and I were 
out touring San Juan. We walked around some shops 
and checked out a few things. In one of the gift 
shops we met a woman from England.

 Of course I started talking to her and before
 you knew it we had a picture of what her life has
 been since hurricane Maria hit the island. 

She has now been living in PR for 13 years, and
was doing really well.  Good job good home, and a 
comfortable life.  Maria came.  Destroyed her home. 
She lost her job because there was no job to go

 She used all her savings while looking f
or a job.
 Savings are all gone, but she found a job in a gift shop. 
She said she was so grateful for this job and 
that suddenly life is looking up again.

She like so many lost everything yet she was pleasant,
 helpful, cheerful, and positive about her outlook in life. 
Today once again I am grateful and thankful even though
 sometimes I think that life has not been fair to me, 

Then I hear about the “other” side and I realize 
once again that I may not have everything I
 want, but I sure have everything I need.

Friday here again. This has been one very rainy week,
 and today does not seem to be any different, but on the
 other hand all of our Friday outings have had rain.

Every so often we should all take a reality check and
 be thankful and grateful for all the blessings we have
 in our lives, for what we do not realize is that what 
we take for granted someone else is praying for.

An attitude of gratitude. This is not only a great rhyme
 but a great way to live. You should always be grateful
 for the things you have. Thankful for everything big
 and small  that fill your life and make it special.

Don’t pray when it rains if you don’t 
pray when the sun shines. We can choose 
to be grateful no matter what...
