An attitude of gratitude
She is thankful for someone volunteering to build a ramp at their house. She is thankful for the gift cards people have given her so that she doesn't have to cook. She is thankful that the new hospital is close to home. She is thankful that our mom did her laundry. She is thankful for an understanding principal at the school where she teaches. She is thankful for the snacks that friends have brought her. She is thankful that her husband is alive!
She could be very angry. She could be asking why this happened. She could be depressed. Instead, she has chosen to be thankful for what she has. She has chosen to see the good instead of focusing on the bad. She has chosen the better way.
