Good morning! Every morning, regardless of circumstances, I wake up and am grateful. Some mornings it’s hard. The last week has been hard. I’m still grateful. In the darkness I’m grateful- it’s as necessary, more, in the darkness. When you practice a life of gratitude, not every once in a while but daily, it makes the hard times easier. It makes it easier to stay in gratitude when the darkness comes. It’s possible to be sad and still be grateful- I know because I am. I can’t disavow the beauty of the world because of the darkness. When night comes I know the beauty is still there and will be revealed again once the sun rises. Have Hope. The beauty is still there. I love you.
