Gratitude has been on my mind for some time now.

Every morning I get up and as I open my eyes I think about how lucky I am for a million little reasons.
I look around me and see what I have in my life, the people who are my family and friends, my clients who become my friends. The people I feed with Susan's Suppers or a cooking class or a catering job.
I give thanks for the soft pillow beneath my head , for the sunshine that streams in my window, for the hot shower that sooths my muscles and cascades over my body.

When I take my walk in the morning I am thankful for the carpet of fiery gold & red leaves that swirl around me. I greet each person with a smile and a wish of happiness for their day and also for mine.

I am choosing to be happy, to see the glass as half full as they say.
I expect good things to happen to me. I know that everything will be all right and that I am where I am suppose to be in my life ~here & now.

I chose to look at the positive side of life, at what I have not what I don't. When you do that you realize how much you truly have. Your world is full of riches~ from the comfort of your home to the ability to stand up straight~ to smile & laugh and to enjoy your life each & every second of every day.
Your life is made of these moments, small little seconds in time that you will look back on and realize that it is what life is truly about.

Enjoy & give thanks for what you have. Be in the moment. Notice who and what is around you. Smile , perform random acts of kindness.. it will elevate your day .
Give thanks for the sunshine, the raindrops the chirping of birds, a good cup of coffee.
Take a moment to look around you and give thanks for all that touches you. It is a wonderful way to live your life!

  1. I am sooo sorry to hear what you have to go through. Please keep the attitude up that you have right now. It helps. Don't forget to yell and cry AND do ask yourself, why me? Susan you have such a wonderful outlook in life, that's why so many people flock to you. You will be in my prayers and thoughts. Donna
