It all starts with the attitude of gratitude – Norton Knows

Each day brings us an opportunity to look upon the world in awe and wonder. Depending on where we live, travel to, or vacation, we have opportunities to see and experience some amazing sights. Mountaintops are once again covered in snow against a bright blue sky. The fall foliage seems to have come alive this year with greater vibrance and the flowing of a river or creek carrying the fallen crimson, orange and yellow leaves.

The magnificence of a sunrise as it enters the sky and fills our day with hope. The calming sunset that reflects all the events and beauty of our day. A Caribbean Sea caressed by the breeze singing a song through the palm trees. A rolling ocean as the waves crash upon the sandy beach and rocky shore.

Even if we do not get to experience these beautiful sights and sounds firsthand every day, with social media, we still have the chance to appreciate them through the posted photos and videos online. Or when friends or family share with us a picture of their surroundings or “current situation.” And when they do, it lifts our spirit and feeds our attitude of gratitude.

Some of us may not get to see nature’s wonders and God’s paintbrush as often as others, but we all get to experience something even more beautiful, more awesome and more tremendously amazing, we get to see one another. And even more than the beauty that surrounds and inspires us, there are everyday people of all ages who bring us to tears of joy as we watch and listen to all they contribute to this world. It is even more special when they do not even know that we are paying attention to them.
