Yesterday’s post on thankfulness was as much for me as for any of the readers. It’s amazing that I often need frequent reminders about the most basic aspects of life which you would think I’d never forget. With busy schedules and hectic lives we seem to dismiss and neglect the simple traits which are vital for succeeding and enjoying life. This has been a great opportunity for me to take some dedicated time and focus on all I have to be thankful for. Of course this is just a short list; I feel like I’m barely scratching the surface. All of the books in the entire world could not contain everything if I listed them individually. It makes my heart happy and humble.
