For me, gratitude is to notice and appreciate what I have, rather than focus on what I think I am lacking. I try to remember that each day, I have exactly what I need. I have found the more I say this out loud and incorporate it into my daily life, the more I find it is so. And of course, there are those times of complaining, you can ask my husband or ask my friends, but when I am mindful and take time for gratitude thinking, I can raise my consciousness to a more joyful and balanced life. There always seems to be something or many things to be grateful for and my intention is to recognize it sooner, rather than later and to express it each day. Gratitude is simple but powerful and giving thanks is nourishment all year.

I know it's a bit early, but I've written my letter to Santa. 
I want to make sure he gets it as soon as possible!

I think I found this on Pinterest but it spoke to me.

This morning entering the kitchen
Tiny fruit flies swarming over
Two ripening bananas on the counter
Who’s sweet aroma begged me
To slice one for my cereal

Slowly eating my breakfast
The flies re-assembled
 On the one remaining fruit
Leaving me to wonder where
Will they go after
I eat the last banana?
