I have been grateful because of some specific things these last few days, but I have to admit, I have not had the “attitude of gratitude.” And there is a difference if you have not really dug in and noticed. To life a grateful life means more than just saying thank you to a person or specific act. It is living from a perspective of being grateful for *everything* not just to good.
To read more about a person who lives with an attitide of gratitde, go read Sally’s Pondering’s in my Blog Roll. OMG, she is an inspiration!
I do have a list of grats however; I amnot blind to all that is good around me. I just take some of it for granted, I guess.
