Gratitude 10-1-2012

Gratitude, thankfulness, gratefulness, or appreciation is a feeling, from the heart or attitude in acknowledgment of a benefit that one has received or will receive.  ~ Wikipedia I decided that I really should make my gratitude known each day and decided that the more publicly done, the better.  Hence, the daily posting of my personal gratitude.  Please feel free to post things that you are grateful for in the comments.

Today, I feel an enormous amount of gratitude that I am in a position to help my wife - my best friend - as she struggles with her job.  The job, Director of Operations at the local Humane Society, is emotionally one of the hardest I've ever seen and eventually wears even the best and strongest - like my wife - down.

I'm grateful that she has let me be at her side for nearly 32 years now.  This too we shall work through as we have so many others things through the years.
