Finding Thankfulness

I am finding my thankfulness again. 

I am thankful for my family and my friends.

I am thankful to be able to have the things we do. 

I am thankful for my creative abilities and my ability to create the quilts, jewelry and misc items I do for friends and family. 

I am thankful for the weather holding so I could spend one of the saddest and most traditional weekends of our family with my Mom. (Today is the 2 year anniversary to my Dad's passing.)

I am thankful that my Mom is able to smile at this time of year and go out for lunch with a new friend.

I am thankful I am able to sit here on my computer and blog about whatever I want.

I am thankful for a lot of things..........the list could go on forever.

What are you thankful for?

It was just a few years ago that I could not find the thankfulness in life.  I focused almost solely on the negative.  I have since found my thankfulness again, and though I can still see some negatives, they do not overtake my brain like they once did.

Look to the sunny side, even though winter storms are barrelling down on us.  Look for the sunny side..........
