To feel grateful is easy when life is cruising along. When your health is good, you love your job, and you aren’t in debt. It is when your relationship and children are amazing. In general, life is wonderful.

But it is when life is at it’s most challenging that brings growth. When it’s difficult to have gratitude is when we should be giving thanks. For when life is hardest is when we learn our life lessons. It is when our character must hold steady. When life presents, its greatest tests are the time for gratitude.

Today I am thankful ..

  • It is a challenging day that makes me dig deep to be grateful
  • It is 34 degrees — Minnesota heatwave
  • I am 2 days away from seeing people I love with all my heart ❤

One of my favorite quotes is by Martin Luther King. “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” That seems to say it all.

affectionately yours, Laura
