A Time to Be Grateful

A Time to Be Grateful 

June 15 is a pivotal day for our family.  For me, it’s an opportunity to remind each of you to hug your family a little tighter and wake up and be grateful for what you have in your life.

All too often we are wrapped up in our lives, without looking outside the box.  Without realizing what we are so fortunate to have, we don’t know how hard it is for others with difficulties.

In memory of my nephews Chris & Brian, you are missed!

Jan: You are so right. I lost a nephew recently which devastated my family. Now I can't hug everyone in my family enough. They call me "Hella the Hugger."

It is how to describe the need to be gratful for what you have to another, unless they too have suffered a lost.

Thanks for the reminder today!

Good morning Jan -

You're so very right - hug the ones you love while you can.  I lost two sisters and would give anything for one last hug and talk.

Great post Jan! It is a good attitude / outlook to appreciate what we have and not fret over what we don't.

Jan- it's too bad that we often have to be reminded to tell our loved ones how much they mean to us and to be grateful for all we have.  I'm so sorry for the loss you and your family have experienced.

Kathy - You're right.  Thanks for that.  They were both in their 20's.  So sad.  My sister's only boys.  Thankfully for her she keeps busy.  This song was played at their memorial and one of my sisters favorite bands, so close to the heart.  I believe Chris had given her the boxed set.  Thanks for commenting and have a wonderful weekend!
