Grateful

Sometimes I think people are too harsh on gratitude. They look for the big things to be grateful for and often miss the small things—and often times the most precious things—to be grateful for.

Of course, I’m guilty too, but I’m working on it.

Hallelujah! By some miraculous feat, your taxes got done! Huzzah, Kumbaya for you! Let’s be grateful.

But did you remember to be grateful for the soft wind that is slowly, but surely blowing the last of winter away?

Do you think anything of a child’s laugh? What’s a world without innocent, nonjudgmental laughter and mirth?

All I’m saying is look up, look around. There are so many things to be grateful for, even if all the big things are going wrong.

In fact, wouldn’t we want to value all the little things even more?
