Day 304, December 13

Sometimes (too frequently, I'm afraid) I focus on what is missing in my life, in the things or accomplishments I don't have.  And I fail to thank the Father for the things I do have.

Some things that come to mind:  a loving family, a warm home, a cat who cuddles with me, friends, a reason to get up in the mornings.  These are just a few of my blessings.  So why can't I remember them with greater thanks and acknowledgment?

The answer that comes to mind (and it's not a particularly palatable one) is that I'm ungrateful.  Here I am writing a blog called "The Gratitude Project" and I realize that I'm ungrateful.

So, for today, I am grateful for a moment of self-honesty.
