What are You Grateful for Today?

It has been raining for 3 days now. It’s really chilly and windy outside. So I guess the winter is finally here. I don’t know why but every year winter seems to come with this kind of rain.

It’s really hard to go outside in this weather. I am really fortunate to have a solid roof over my head. At least I have the warmth of my home to come to. But what about the millions of people who are spending their lives in streets? I wonder what they are doing now.

Sometimes a little comparison is necessary to be content, to be grateful. My fellow blogger Ann asked me “What are you grateful for today?” That day I couldn’t answer this question right away.

Today the answer could be something like this-
1. I don’t have to spend the night outside in the cold.
2. I don’t have to get wet as I have a roof over my head.
3. I won’t have to go to bed with an empty belly.
4. I can cover myself with a clean blanket.
5. If I still need another blanket I can fetch one from the locker.

Dear readers, what are you grateful for today?

  5. I think many of us need to pause from time to time and remind ourselves of how much we have to be grateful for. I got into a habit of 'saying my gratefuls' early in my recovery from heroin addiction and it is a practice I have never strayed from. I find it keeps me focused and humble. Thank you for the great reminder!
