    I am glad that you are such an optimist. You see the glass being half full. No matter how hard I try, I still end up being a pessimist. Good for you. I wish I could be more like you.

    I love this! The night before Thanksgiving I went to bed late because I had been up visiting with family and preparing for dinner. When I went to bed I laid there and thought about what I’m thankful for…and went on with a long list in my mind. I too love life and am thankful just for the journey of being here. My life hasn’t always been easy but it has always been interesting. I’ve tried to learn from everything and to take the good from every experience and to find the positive in every person I’ve come across. I wanted to get back up and write it down, but I was just to tired so I decided it would be my prayer, and maybe I would write it when I woke up. But the days festivities wore me out and I never did write it down. But thats ok. God heard me. I’m happy your wrote yours down enjoyed reading yours 🙂
