~ Wednesday Gratitude ~

  It's Wednesday and another opportunity to link up with Heidi and express our gratitude!  Drop by her blog and join in...also, please visit the other blogs that have linked up too.

As I sit here in front of my computer (that links me to anyplace in the world) drinking the most wonderful cup of coffee in much needed air conditioning, I am so blessed!  I've had a shower with great body products and I've been able to dress in clothing of my choice which is clean and colorful.  I've had a breakfast of a whole grain waffle and fresh fruit and I've taken my vitamins. I have a choice as to quiet, music, the TV, etc.  This time last week I had just had my 2nd cataract surgery with a reknowned Dr and the results are amazing!  I am able to read most things without glasses, including all the fun blogs which links me to YOU.  Not one single thing I've mentioned is earth shattering to anyone but me but oh my, such miracles and blessings!  I cannot help but think of those that are less fortunate and send love and blessings their way. We truly have SO MUCH to be grateful for each moment of each day. 

Enjoy your miracles and blessings and make it a great day!

xoxo

Hi Pat,
Well, your thoughts may not be "earth shattering", but I always come away from here with something that made me smile or think a little harder! I appreciate you and your blog so much!! Your attitude is always sunny and bright, and I am so happy that your surgery is over and you can see clearly now! That is thrilling (I wear contacts and can only imagine what it's like to have clear vision!)
Have a wonderful day!
XO

Your post makes me appreciate all the little things in my life that I take for granted. There will always be people that are more or less fortunate than we are, but when we take the time to focus on our own blessings...that's earth shattering enough for me!

Thanks for a great post, as always!

YOu always make me feel good. I do think it is good to remember all of those little things that we take for granted, things that others would only dream of...hot running water, plenty to eat, clean and stylish clothing...each a treasure.

I'm so glad that your eyes are doing better. I love your grateful heart. It's all a matter of perspective, isn't it?

Hugs,

I sometimes need a reminder to start concentrating on the many blessings in my life instead of the small stuff that really doesn't matter.

Your post was the reminder that I needed.

Thanks... and I am going to be a new follower.
