For your consideration…..

Gratitude is the magnet to pull into our life those things we honor, value, desire and need. When we are grateful for something, it is like giving the universe a hint on what we want for our birthday.

How do we show gratitude? Again, it is in the pause and taking that moment to acknowledge the action. It can be with a smile, a silent tribute, verbally, an action or prayer.

It couldn’t be simpler. We all had the ability given to us in our life tool kit at birth.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, hope by hope action steps anyone can take…..

-Drink lots of water today.

-Spend some time outdoors taking in deep breaths.


-Do a good deed. Acknowledge another.

-At the end of the day, journal at least 3 things that made you grateful today.

Things that made me smile yesterday….

-Jordan is like a blessing from heaven with help I desperately need

-Running into friends expectantly

-Gutters are cleaned and ready for the next rain.

-My Sis, her joy on a Friday night is contagious

-My Peanut, the softball player hopping with joy at her great plays. The fun is when she remembers others can see she is hopping in joy. Note to self….must contain my excitement at my performance to self. Try to act casual.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

    two things Chris –
    1. My first suggestion is that we should all embrace excitement and not hesitate to show when we are excited by our own accomplishments as well as those of others. My note to self is simply to rejoice and Give God the Glory every single time…. Society too often pushes us to “act casual” – and I too often comply….
    2. When did you solve the logo challenge and remove the white backing? It looks great now!!! congrats on that accomplishment!

  3. I have really learned some new things by means of your blog Gratitude | Hope's Rising. One other thing I would really like to say is always that newer laptop or computer os’s tend to allow much more memory to use, but they likewise demand more memory space simply to operate. If your computer cannot handle more memory plus the newest software program requires that ram increase, it might be the time to shop for a new PC.
