Counting My Many Blessings


Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.

It turns what we have into enough, and more.

It turns denial into acceptance,

...chaos to order, confusion to clarity.

It can turn a meal into a feast,

a house into a home,

a stranger into a friend.

Gratitude makes sense of our past,

brings peace for today and

creates a vision for tomorrow.

Perfection! You're a magician: turned a potentially bummer moment into a delightful celebration! (Is it wrong to have Nantucket Pie for breakfast? oh wait, I'm probably not going to wait for the answer anyway)

I'd like to add one more to the list of people who are thankful for you being you. I'm so proud to call you my daughter.
