Gratitude- Unappreciated Blessings
Yesterday was peaceful and lovely, including the beautiful sunset over the Las Vegas valley. I hope to always have a grateful heart for days like that. It is true that we often don’t appreciate things until they are gone or are slipping away from us. It isn’t until we lose our health, or lose a loved one, or lose our financial stability, or lose something else of value that our eyes of gratitude are able to really see the blessings that we commonly take for granted. Maintaining a grateful heart is a commandment from God. Why? Because it is one of the most important things we can do to be happy in this mortal life. And God wants us to be happy.
