The 19th November marked 7 years since my car accident, which has challenged my life in so many ways.
If I had to pick the biggest thing that I have learned over the last 7 years, it would be that living in GRATITUDE every day is incredibly powerful and life changing. My focus has been not looking back on the past, not focusing on what was or could have been, but rather focusing on the blessings in my life on a daily basis. I cannot adequately convey the benefits that daily gratitude has had on my life.
2016 has been a year of enormous change in my own life and for us as a family. We have had huge breakthrough in reconciliation with my oldest son, who is now back in our lives but sadly his marriage has broken down. 4 weeks ago, we were given court ordered time with our 4 grandchildren on a weekly basis which has been wonderful! All of this has been a huge answer to our constant prayers!
"Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation." ~ Brian Tracy
"Yesterday's the past, tomorrow's the future, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present." ~ Bill Keane
"Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse." ~ Henry Van Dyke Read
"Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow." ~ Melody Beattie
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend." ~ Melody Beattie
