Gratitude Reminders

many analogies here
 (my sister Jill took pic)


I went to see my doctor yesterday at Shepherd Spinal Center.  I walked with my walker being very appreciative as I saw.....

A woman in a wheelchair with her head frozen looking up and her mouth frozen open.  She was accompanied by what looked like her mother.

A young man being rushed down the hall on a stretcher being followed closely by very concerned looking parents.

A young man in a wheelchair repeatedly saying, hello, hello, hi, mama, home....accompanied by staff.

A lady in a wheelchair with her gray haired husband trying to get a coat to lay on her.

The day left me being so grateful for what I am able to do!
                   I hope it does you to!

I had a neighbour who used to say: when I look around me I stop complaining and start being grateful. It may not sound so good, but.. it's very human.

We very, very rarely have to look far to be reminded of just how much we have.
Gratitude is a gift which keeps on giving. And giving.

Exactly! When I feel miserable with back pain I try to feel grateful that I I can still walk even though I can't play tennis.
