From my blog last year about this time;
"I am trying to be grateful for each passing day. This can be difficult at times, some days are tough to be grateful for. But the way I am trying to look at it, those days that are difficult are just a precursor to better days, and therefore I should be grateful for each. In other words, they are really parts of the whole, so I want to be grateful and give thanks for the tough ones as well as the ones that feel more rewarding. The ultimate extension of this I suppose would be to be thankful for each moment, maybe I’ll work on that next."
It is good I think to set goals and review them, and review one’s progress, needs, and lessons learned. Reviewing what I blogged last year, I still think the daily rule is a good one and realistic. I don’t know that the moment to moment goal is viable (lesson learned perhaps), maybe it is enough to be grateful each and every day, even when moments take you away from this goal, as they tend to do at times. Enough I think to turn as many bad moments into good ones as you can, and be able to average the good and bad into a day and call most of them good ones. I think I have made some progress this last year at doing this, and there is plenty of room for improvement, so that is something to look forward to.
There are so many things to be grateful for I am sure I could never count them all, and so I won’t even try.
Here is a very short list from me.
Someone to keep a loving eye out for me, my watchful Bonnie cat shown here of course.
Interesting things to experience, even on a cloudy day,
like this ghost mountain projected into the sky last week, yes it really isn’t there.
Fun and laughter, here’s a few thanksgiving funnies I was sent by my sister in Idaho.
And when the day is dark and dreary, a memory of a brighter time to get through the day or days.

And of course friends, to be thankful for, and music too, so here is a tune for all my friends.
