So for my final day, I'm cheating a little. I'm recycling aspects of my previous lists in order to highlight the top #3 things that I'm most grateful for. The irony is that none of them are "things":
1) My Heavenly Father, who has given me a compass to follow, a moral code that improves my life, a belief system that inspires eternal hope, and a village of like-minded people in which to raise my family.
2) My wife, as my marriage to her was simply the best decision I have ever made.
3) My children, for they bring joy to my life and hope for the future.
So, I did it. I finished 30 days of my Gratitude List. At times, it was actually pretty hard to think of things that I hadn't done before. For today, I cheated a bit but this was really how I wanted to end this anyway. So ... what are you grateful for?
Fine: be that way, Mr. Raccoon.
