Each year, around Thanksgiving, we usually do a post on what we’re grateful for. This year, we’re turning it into a Question of the Week! And unlike past years where we’ve been grateful for the really BIG things in life (family, health, work, etc.), this go-round we’re showing you that an attitude of gratitude can be about the little silly things, too — and that it can last all month and year long!
There are a million plus one (plus one!) things to be grateful in this amazing world of ours. Large and small, I try to focus on at least a couple of them every day. And there’s no better way to bust out of a funk than by focusing on what you have. We all have SO much. So read on for a few of the lighterhearted and random things I’m grateful for … hopefully you’re thankful for them, too!
