Be Grateful!

One of the GREAT secrets of life is to be grateful!  You must be thankful everyday for the things and people you do have in your life!  I know most of us want more, but that is hard to happen if we are not thankful for what we already have!  This image says it all:
After I left the hospital, and relearned to walk, I occasionally find myself just saying thank you!  I am so grateful for the ability to stand and walk!  I cannot even describe how scary it is to be not able to stand or walk.  Last summer I also got the ability to drive again.  I could not drive for 2 1/2 years!  I am thankful for that everyday!
One of the best ways to show your gratitude is to keep a gratitude journal.  Every day write 5 things you are grateful for.  You might be surprised!  Also don't wait to lose something then realize how much you miss it.  I used to have perfect vision before MS.  I now have optic nerve damage, and when it is hard to see I wonder if I ever appreciated my perfect vision?  I don't think I ever did!
So in a nutshell be grateful for the people and things in your life!  Good things will come from it!
