New Year, New Attitude?

So, first off, Happy New Year! Now that that is out of the way, I've been thinking. I think I need an attitude adjustment. This year my goal is to be grateful. That's it. Just grateful. I thought I would make a list of the things I am grateful for, good idea, right? Like a reminder that life is good. Well, I have that reminder every day. The little voice that says 'good morning Mommy' - that truly is the best sound in the world.

Things I Am Grateful For: my child (soon to be children), the impending birth of my son, my husband (no matter how much we don't see eye to eye), my family (even with all the chaos), my friends - even those that I don't really talk with anymore - I am still grateful that they are at some level a part of my life, creativity, having a roof over our heads when so many don't, the ability to grow and learn.

By no means is this a comprehensive list. Along the way I am sure I will discover more things to be grateful for, and maybe I will remember to share, but those of you who know me, also know that I may have to be reminded to.

2011 was an intense amazing year full of adventure and change. Lets be realistic. I am NEVER going to catch up with sharing the events of 2011. And I may be just as horrid at sharing in 2012, but here's to hoping I can get a little better at it. WITH the Attitude of Gratitude.

After all, how can you not be grateful when you wake up every morning with food to eat, a roof over your head, gainful employment, friends and family, and the knowledge that today is another day to try your best?

This being said, welcome to post number one of Attitude of Gratitude.

I invite you to be Grateful.
I invite you to join with me and show your Attitude of Gratitude.
You may have to remind me to share mine, but lets do this!
