 Good morning Mintdom,

I have started and re-started this blog many times this morning. I have so many thoughts going through my head that I am a little overwhelmed, and it is too early in the morning to sort them all out. The main theme though is gratitude – that is clear. Therefore, I guess I think I will make a short gratitude list here.

I am grateful for my faith – without it, I would not be able to do the things that I do – it would be far too scary 

I am grateful for my family and friends – without them, I would not WANT to do anything!

 I am grateful for my health – it is not exactly where I want it to be yet, but I am making daily progress 

I am grateful for my work – I love who I work with, the company I work with, and the work that I do – I love my job!

 I am grateful that I have not seen the mouse in a week – I hope MINTor has joined MINTie mouse (as my dad calls them) in the great forest in the sky.

 I am grateful for my DVR – I never have to miss a show that I like and I watch on MY schedule!

I am grateful for Mintdom – my readers bless me EVERY day with their encouragements, insights, and love! 

I know those are a bit generalized, but in my mind and heart, I see the details, and I already feel less overwhelmed. My heart is full this morning and my sense of being overwhelmed is due to a very full heart. A gratitude list not only clears my head, it is a great way to change a bad attitude or pick me up when I am feeling blue.

 “Joy is a heart full and a mind purified by gratitude.” –Marietta McCarty 

Enjoy these two songs and may your heart be full today. http://tinyurl.com/GratitudeSong and on a more serious note and I would advise you to listen in a quiet place because this one brought me to tears http://tinyurl.com/ThankfulSong . I love you all!

AffirMINTion: I am grateful for my life!

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

 Life is good!
