Do you see what I see?

DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE?  SEE THE HEART SHAPES IN THE COFFEE? HEARTS ARE THE IMAGE OF LOVE AND APPRECIATION. I USUALLY ENJOY A HOT CUP OF HOMEMADE COFFEE WITH HALF AND HALF MIXED IN AS WELL AS MINI MARSHMALLOWS NESTLED ON TOP WITH A STRAW THAT MY HUBBY BRINGS TO ME BEFORE MY EYELIDS EVEN OPEN. MY HEART IS VERY GRATEFUL FOR HIM CARING FOR ME LIKE HE DOES. WE ALL WAKE UP EACH MORNING WITH THE AMAZING PRIVILEGE OF BREATHING AIR AND BEING GRATEFUL. I ONCE HEARD TO HAVE A GREAT FULL DAY BE GRATEFUL ALL DAY! GRATITUDE IS A CHOICE. DOES LIFE ALWAYS LEND ITSELF FOR ME TO “FEEL” GRATEFUL? NOPE. THERE ARE DEFINITELY DAYS WHERE LIFE IS AWFUL. YOU WAKE UP AND THE DOG HAS EATEN YOUR FAVORITE SANDALS, THE TEENS HAVE LEFT DISHES AND CLOTHES ALL OVER THE HOUSE, YOUR NOT SURE IF YOU HAVE ENOUGH GAS IN THE CAR WITH ALL THE DRIVERS DRIVING “YOUR” VEHICLE, YOUR EXTRA TIRED JUST BECAUSE YOUR GETTING OLDER AND YOU DON’T SLEEP AS WELL AS YOU ONCE DID, FOR MANY REASONS YOUR ANNOYED AT SOMETHING EITHER YOU DID OR YOUR SPOUSE DID, YOU START ANALYZING YOUR EMOTIONS AND END UP DOWN A RABBIT TRAIL OF THE D’S ( DESPAIR, DISCOURAGEMENT, DOUBT, DEPRESSION…) AND THAT’S JUST IN THE 5 MINUTES AFTER GETTING OUT OF BED. WAIT A SECOND HERE. ALL THAT DESCRIBED MY DAY YESTERDAY. OKAY ON A SERIOUS NOTE LIFE IS JUST GOING TO BE STRETCHING MOST DAYS UNTIL WERE IN THE SIGHT OF JESUS AND ALL THAT IS WRONG IN THE WORLD IS MADE RIGHT. WHILE WERE HERE LIVING EACH DAY LET’S CHOOSE TO BE GRATEFUL. IN THE END ITS BETTER THAN BEING GROUCHY, I’VE TRIED THAT, DON’T RECOMMEND IT ITS NOT THAT FUN!
