the habit of gratitude

I missed my sunset hike tonight to Tinker Cliffs.  I slept straight through my alarm clock after working a slew of night shifts. I initially had that frantic moment of "jump out of bed and hit the door" feeling, and then realized it probably was not so smart to schedule a hike on my first night off. I was disappointed because I haven't used my camera all week and was looking forward to the challenge of sunset photos.  

I regrouped, and spent the evening sitting on the grass taking pictures of my sweet girls. I watched them frolic in the grass, sprint around the yard, and just lounge. I sipped on my first pumpkin beer of the season on a cool fresh night. In the lounging, I realized how blessed and lucky I am. It's a real tragedy that the human mind so easily focuses on the little negatives instead of the overwhelming positives.

The quote goes, "gratitude turns what we have into enough".
