Appreciating the simple gifts in life helps me to stay grateful:
A laugh with a good friend.
A book that I am given to enjoy.
Breakfast at a favorite spot.
A drive through a beautiful area.
Finding the joy in the moment, the simple gifts of the day, act as a reminder of all the unexpected good that life brings.
When I am feeling hopeless…
When I am fighting through pain and despair…
I must stop, have faith, look around me, and see that my Higher Power is offering me signs of hope each time a simple gift is given.
“Dear God, thank you for the simple gifts in life. Thank you for reminding me each day that I have joy in these unexpected moments of happiness.”
