When it comes to life the critical thing is whether you take things for granted or take them with gratitude. ~~ G. K. Chesterton
For the rest of November, I’m going to take for gratitude some of those things I often take for granted — an entire alphabet’s worth! Since today is the fourth day of this surge of gratitude, I am giving thanks for “D” things.
Deserts and dessert and the discernment to know the difference.
The desire and determination, the dedication and daring to go after our dreams.
Dawn and daylight, dusk and dazzling sunsets.
Dear and darling and other doting endearments.
Discussions, deliberation, the ability to defend our ideas.
And dancing, of course.
So, what “D” things are you taking for gratitude today?
