Attitude of Gratitude

Grateful, Thankful, Appreciative, Obliged, Indebted....however you choose to say it, it's grateful season and I'm GRATEFUL for the opportunity to express it! Have I said the word grateful yet? My list of blessings is long, as I'm sure yours is, and there is much to be thankful for. I could go on for days and write several books {novels} based on my fortunate life.  Here is a small peak of what I'm grateful for today...and always! In no particular order: (Please forgive the randomness!)
