I woke up this morning wondering, what will this day be for me? 

So I got up, did my usual morning routine, got my prayer journal and had a quiet time with the Lord. 

I was quite surprised with God's words for me today ... "bitterness" and "grateful heart". 

So I thought ....  Am I bitter of the things I couldn't do and couldn't have?  Or simply grateful for the things I can actually do and have been blessed with.

I chose to be grateful, ofcourse.  Grateful for another day of blessings and affirmations.  Thankful for all the things I already have - my loved ones...  and this is all that matters!
