Take a moment for Gratitude

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand moments so dear
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure--measure a year?

In sunsets
In cups of coffee
In miles
In stride

In five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure a year in the life?
How about in love?
Measure in love.
(Seasons of Love/Rent)

2008 is coming to a close and you have a choice! You can begin the new year focused on the things that plague your life, or you can choice to focus on the elements of your life for which you are grateful. The choice is YOURS!

Yes, the economy is in turmoil, but you have food to feed your family. Yes, times are difficult, but do you have your health? Your family may not all be able to come together for the holidays, but you have friends who will share their holiday with you this year.

So how will you spend your new year? I urge you to measure it in love, and witness all that fills your life with joy, contentment and happiness. I hope you can choose to measure it in love!

Good advice, too many people seem to looks at all the little things that make their lives not "perfect" and don't concentrate on all the blessings they have.
