Tell us how you've come to have an attitude gratitude.

I am grateful for so much in my life! I truely feel blessed. I am grateful everyday that my family is happy and healthy. I watched my dear brother learn how to walk and talk all over again after a long struggle with severe vasculitis. I then watched as he fought for his life after he was stricken with lymphoma. There is nothing worse, in my opinion, than watching someone you love go through these ordeals. This is why I try not to take for granted time that I get to spend with my family. I know that there are times that this time is taken for granted, but please do my a favor and cherish every moment you have!

Now, I'd like to pass this award onto 10 of my bloggy "friends." Some of these bloggers are old friends, and some are new friends. However, all of them have impressed me for different reasons.
