I'm grateful to witness all the different ways love is shown. I'm grateful for the typical ways such as hugs and kisses between family and friends but even more so for the acts of love between strangers or animals. These acts of love happen every day and yet sometimes we don't seem to notice just how beautiful they are. I'm grateful for a dog that looks out for her much older, deaf and nearly blind friend and guides her back to the porch and the warmth of the house when she can not find it on her own. I'm grateful for the sweet nuzzling of my dogs when I am not feeling well or am sad. I'm grateful for the kindness of a stranger that tells you when you have dropped something or holds the door for you in the cold. I'm grateful for the people each day that work jobs helping those who are struggling. I'm grateful for a simple smile that can warm the coldest day. There are a million simple ways to show love, even to those we have not yet friended, and I'm grateful to be noticing these acts and doing my part to pass this love on to others! What simple act of love can you show someone today? How can you help boost the spirits of a complete stranger? I'm so grateful for this wonderful community that shares their love every day! Namasté
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
