Be Grateful!

You would think that if we did anything, we would be grateful.  Yes?  

But instead, I find that many people are just complaining and negative.  

Do today stop what you are doing and choose one thing to be grateful for.  In fact, do it every day.  

Then after you have done that, choose one person in your life to be grateful too.  Send them an email or a text.  Call them or stop by.  You don't need to spend any money.  Just use your words.  Let them know how much you appreciate them. 

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, help me to be grateful today.  AMEN
