As the day closes, we all take stock. And some days, our internal tape recorders play back negative things.
“I accomplished nothing today.” “He gave me grief.” “She hurt my feelings.”
But I have a friend who closes her day in a perfectly serene way—with simple gratitude.
Here’s what she wrote recently:
“Every day I see or hear something that inspires me to be a better person. Today, it was a friend who took time to share and encourage, a woman who showed incredible grace and dignity in the face of disappointment, and a stranger whose actions said ‘I am indeed my brother's keeper.’”
What are you thinking about tonight?
