Did the title of this post catch your attention.
When you think about the term moral fiber you may immediately think of religion or something spiritual.
I would agree that moral fiber is spiritual. I believe it is part of our internal wiring. How we are made. As I think about gratitude and the many things I am grateful for I realized many of these values are woven in to my moral fiber. If I lose sight of the things I am grateful for my disposition changes. It is not a good feeling.
Realizing that gratitude serves as my compass for thoughts and actions has been powerful. Gratitude has grown far beyond a card with sentiments written on it. If you were to use the same tool for your compass where would it lead you?
I am grateful for the laughter of children – this leads to a happy heart.
I am grateful for the love of my husband, my children, my family – this leads to contentment.
I am grateful for the dawn of a new day complete with heavy raindrops, mist and fog – this leads to new birth and renewal.
Where can gratitude lead you?
