"Gratitude creates the most wonderful feeling." Gordon B. Hinckley
We were at Costco last night. I'm always amazed when I'm there....going up the aisles...seeing the shelves stacked with tons of stuff......and even in the food court...their servings of oversized portions always reminds me of Fred Flintstone portions.
Being there.....looking at all the things.....I remember when I had nothing.....when I was dependant on the kindness of strangers....or social workers......I've been given much more than I even need. I never want to take any of it for granted. I am grateful for having:
-clean water to drink
-more than enough food
-tons of creature comforts
-freedom and rights to come and go as I want
-mostly though.....an abundance of His love and grace without which I would have none of the above.
