There is so much going on in the world to be thankful for and happy about that I refuse to be frightened or angered by the news about viruses, terrorists, politicians, etc.
This morning, I am thankful to modern medicine and Dr. Murray Rosenbaum for (in the doc’s words, not mine) a PERFECT cardio ablation preformed on Mitch 2 days ago. If you or someone you know, struggles with A-FIB (atrial fibrillation) and are NOT familiar with this option, please ask me questions! While this cannot be considered a “cure,” we are feeling very optimisitic!
My gratitude list is too long this morning. I have written and deleted several times. I don’t want to sound like I am gloating. I do have to say beyond being thankful for the obvious, how much it makes me smile that my boys still love Legos and that my girls deal with it and can bond about it across many miles. All the pics and comments they shared these past few days on Facebook have made me grin from ear to ear.
I am not a preacher so I cannot tell you how much practicing gratitude can change your life, I can only tell you how positively it impacts me in my life. A healthy mind helps keep a healthy body and vice-versa!
So for me, I choose to step away from the news which really is terrorism in it’s true form and instead focus on what I can control. I absolutely LOVE this quote of the day from early this week and wanted to share before I leave for the park for my first workout of the day……..
“I will be generous with my love today. I will sprinkle compliments and uplifting words everywhere I go. I will do this knowing that my words are like seeds and when they fall on fertile soil, a reflection of those seeds will grow into something greater.”
Thank you to everyone who kept great thoughts for Mitch and I this week. I have the most amazing support system and for that I am beyond grateful.
Have a beautiful day and remember you choose what you want to fill your 24 hours with…..
