Day 155 – LSS Attitude of Gratitude – Grand-kids – There is always something to be grateful for.

I awoke this morning with the clear and important thought that today is the birthday of my youngest grandchild. I spent the day hoping he was having a party that would bring him joy. So today I focused on thoughts about hopes and wants for all my grands. I am grateful they are in my life.  I have loved them from the moment I knew of their existence. I loved them to infinity as I saw them and held them after their birth. They are the continuation of my families’ legacy. You cannot explain to someone who is not a grandparent what it feels like. 

My dear grand children: 

I hope you know I love you today, tomorrow, and I shall continue to do so until I leave this realm.  No, I shall even love you when I leave this realm.

I hope you have special dreams to look forward to and that you reach them. 

I hope you experience and know love every day of your life.     

I hope the joy in your life far outweighs any sadness.

I hope you know that I wish I was capable of protecting you from all sadness.

I hope I can give you some opportunities for joy. 

I hope you can look at yourself and appreciate what an awesome person you are.

I hope you never allow anyone to take away your goodness.  

I hope you continue to learn for your entire life, because with knowledge comes empowerment.   

I hope you have the joy of more real friends in your life than on your phone or computer.   

I hope you treat others with the respect as that is the best way to get respect.

I hope you have people in your life that want the best for you and that you support those you care about.

I hope you are grateful for all that you have in this lifetime and that you share that gratitude with others.

I hope you appreciate this quote I have seen often, “You are not a product of your circumstances, you are a product of your decisions.”

I hope you know the only limits to your future are the ones you set.   

I hope you take care of your body and mind as you only get one of each. 

I hope you know good health for a long long time and never take it for granted. You come from a line of people who live a long long time so you will get more joy if you are healthy.

I hope when you are an adult you find someone who knows you and loves you for who you are.  I hope that person brings you happiness and you get to spend a lifetime bringing each other joy.   

I hope you will keep memories of our time together in your heart forever. 

I love you.
