I think there is a difference between being thankful and grateful. Thankful to me, means acknowledging what you have and being appreciative for it. Gratitude feels more like a deep awareness that what you have is a true blessing. Realizing that what you have isn’t something every one else has. It’s thankfulness on a higher level perhaps.
This year I am grateful.
Grateful for my family, for my health, for the success of my business, for my incredible clients, for my new house that is being built, for God’s faithfulness to me & His provision in my life, the joy in my daily life, for my amazing friends and for my incredible husband (who is celebrating his birthday today! Happy Birthday David!). I know not everyone is blessed to have these things. I deserve none of this, and yet I have all of it. I am so very grateful!
