Gratitude for you Friday

I want to take a minute and thank you for being a reader. At the moment I have 15 blog followers and 6 facebook followers. I thank each and every one of you.
My family was supposed to go on a mini vacation on Monday. Our friends were going to be driving from Canada to meet us. This week the husband was in his martial arts class and got hit in the face with the bamboo stick. I wont go into the details, but his face swelled up and has been in the hospital for a day and a half. I am waiting to see if our trip will have to be postponed until he is better. I am so thankful he got to the hospital and was seen so quickly. This prompted me to do a post about gratitude and sharing it with those I love.

Today I am grateful for my friends and family, for my job, the ability to pay my bills, the services those bills provide, and my health. While this is certainly not everything, this is what comes to mind at the moment.

I try to say thank you to everyone and give a compliment to at least one person that I come in contact with each day. It can make you feel good and possible turn around somebody elses day. Have you ever paid for someone elses drink order at the local coffee house? A recent experience at the drive through for me was just that. I turned around and paid for the person behind me. I wonder how many cars behind me did the same? Could the person behind me have had an awful morning and lost a loved one, just got fired from their job, got a divorce, have cancer, fighting depression or on the verge of suicide? How do YOUR actions affect others? Have a positive attitude and give just a piece of yourself each day. In just a few seconds you could make someone else smile and turn their world around.

What are you grateful for and how do you show that? Do you keep a gratitude journal?
