Remember to be Grateful

For the past few days I've been visiting my grandparents in New Jersey. Although it can be slow around here sometimes, I just love listening to their stories. We don't get to visit them often since we have to fly from Atlanta every time, but every time we do visit, I learn so much more about the amazing lives my grandparents lived. 

It's easy to forget to be thankful for what you have. More often than not, I take the fact that I have a loving family with wonderful grandparents for granted. I know not everyone has the support system that I do, and I wish everyone could experience what I do every day. 

With this being said, I think it's important to wake up every morning with a grateful heart and a mind open to any opportunity that could come your way. You never know what could happen, so it should be said that you should always stay thankful for what you have. 

Now that's it's around the holidays, it's easier now more than ever to remember what we're thankful for, especially with the abundance of time we spend with friends and family. 

This Thursday, when we go around the dinner table and say what we're thankful for, I definitely know I'll have something to say.
