Like the coffee that’s brewing as I type. On Saturday, I had a coffee shortage. Sure makes me appreciate my Monday morning cup.
And the fact that I am able to afford to buy Thing Two a second scientific calculator when his goes missing and then I have the fortune to find one at Costco for $6.
Let’s not forget that I should be grateful for being able to identify the matches who aren’t my match as I work my way through my Match.com subscription. At least I have the self-confidence to wait for someone who suits me rather than settling just to have someone.
But today, on a global level, I’m grateful for people who do good things.
I believe deeply that there is more good than evil in this world, but we don’t focus on the good, so we don’t always see it.
Our news shows provide 95% bad news: crime, taxes, scandals, disasters. And every once in a while show us one story of something truly good — not one of those positive PR deals that the TV station sponsors — but showing some good news just for the sake of sharing good news.
This weekend, I stumbled upon this video.
It made me smile. And I decided to that it’s my call to focus on the positive. And to be infinitely thankful for it.
Won’t you join me?
