Gratitude is so therapeutic for me. It reminds me that life is filled with more blessings than pain. As I have mentioned, I am implementing the Self-Journal my boys gifted me. I either have to list three things I am thankful for or one thing I am grateful for and three reasons why. Here are the three reasons I am thankful:
1. I’m Thankful for my Husband.
I’m thankful for my husband, Robert Daley. He leads this family wonderfully. We’ve taken a step back to focus on my health which means I am not aggressively pursuing the business for a bit. Things are more than tight and still, he finds a way to make it work. He goes from the suit to Uber on weekends to keep us afloat.

These are just three of the things I am grateful for. God’s grace and guidance are just awesome. I love to give him thanks by putting nouns and verbs together that articulate the things that fill my heart with gratitude. So far, it is pretty easy on most days because my blessings
