My brother and I began this blog so that at least once a week, we could find something to be grateful for.  I must say that every day, through out the day, I am saying thank you to the creator or to someone else.  I truly am grateful for this life that I am living.  I go to sleep at night and before I doze off, I thank the creator for another wonderful day and for all that I have been given.  I wake up in the morning and I thank the creator for another day alive and ask for guidance to make this world a better place.  As the sun rises over the hills by my house, I thank the creator for a beautiful sunrise.

I have learned that if you are grateful, even for the little things, that your life is fullfilled.  I was reading a book by Don Miguel Ruiz this morning and he was stating how we should be grateful for death; because if you accept that you can die at any time, then you appreciate life so much more.  This made sense to me.  I am grateful for death and therefore I am also grateful for my life.
