Learning to be grateful takes practice. But if you engage your mind, your heart, and your actions toward gratitude you can enjoy life in so many fun ways.
In the book "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens he says to "reflect upon your present blessings - of which (everyone) has many". I believe that means that it's important to think about the things you have today that are "blessings" in your life.
A "blessing" is just something really awesome in your life that was given to you when you least expected it.
Some of my favorite blessings are my neighbors, the horse at the farm behind my house, and drinking a great cup of hot coffee.
What are some blessings in your life that you are thankful for?
