Wednesday's Words of Wisdom

Last week it was Wednesday's Whining...but today, some Words of Wisdom were in my inbox when I woke up this morning that made me stop a moment and think:

Be grateful simply for being alive. When you are grateful for life, pure and simple, your life becomes one you can be grateful for. That may strike you as circular or even backward logic, but your attitude really does have an effect on how things work out. When you can’t change your life any other way, you can still change your attitude. When you do, your life changes. You find more chances to love, and you will be surprised to see how much more love is returned to you.

This quotation really spoke to me today - it told me to remember not to take life for granted, to be grateful the the basics, which are the most important "things" I have...Live, Love, Laughter, Health, Family and Friends. I have noticed in situations, like President's Weekend (my travel nightmare), became a fun adventure when I "lived in the now" and was grateful for being alive. And when I received this quote in my inbox today, it was a good reminder that I don't have to be facing a stressful situation just to be thankful for what I have - it is a good reminder to remember to be grateful even when everything becomes routine.

Thank you my dear blogging friends...for taking time out of your busy schedule; out of your daily life to visit and to comment (without obligation). It means a lot to me!

Have a good day and remember...Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often! Lisa
