I am currently sittin in my lazy boy chair, with a cat curled at my feet, watching the Orange Bowl.  I am grateful for DVR’s that allow me to fast forward through all commercials as well as the half-time show.  Is that really all that I am grateful for right now?  No; there is always so much more.  I am grateful that I have lived to see the completion of another year; and I am looking forward to this new one.

I am planning on working very hard to make it a successful year.  What will that success look like?  The list is too long to list here; but I am grateful for my entire family, (it was nice hanging with my mom last week at my sister’s house).  I am grateful for so many good friends; friends that I consider family, thank you for your friendship.  I am always grateful for my health.

There is so much to be grateful for and this is a good time to reflect on all that you have and to acknowledge it as well.
