Gratitude is hard to find in hard times
As April slowly slips to May, it’s hard to find things to be grateful for. With each day bringing a different problem, this month has been particularly stressful . And as the month coming to a close, things are going to get even more difficult.
Yet as we prepare for difficult times ahead , I remind myself that there are still things to be grateful for . Because in gratitude we find solace in our otherwise stressful life. I’m not looking for the silver lining but truly appreciating what I have.
Love : An abundance of love from family and friends. This month has brought home to me the importance of a loving family.
My father always tells me that while we don’t choose our families, we definitely choose our friends. So we should choose wisely. I am grateful for my friends who always find time for me even though I may not always find time for them. Thank you dear ladies relaxing afternoons we shared over conversation and a delightful summer lunch.
Health & Exercise : At the beginning of this month, I had a minor health issue which led to some major investigation. I am grateful that nothing major has developed and the only weighty problem is my weight.
But I am grateful that we have a Gym in our building so that I can sneak out at least 35 minutes on the treadmill.
Blogging & Bloggers : How can something that is intangible become a real part of your life? It can and unlike most people who follow Google blindly, I am becoming one of those blogging addicts who finds herself constantly checking out alerts, stats and new posts.
I am grateful to all my blogger friends whose engaging posts keep me entertained and well informed.
Lastly, I’m grateful for this quiet time which perforce I had to spend at home. It has given me a chance to introspect and catch up on many thoughts that have been running amok in my head.
