Finally, I am caught up with my gratitude blog posts for Patch! Today is the last day of the Gratitude in Alexandria series! I hope you have enjoyed reading different viewpoints on what makes the things, people, and places of southern Alexandria special enough to be publicly recognized.
Today, I’d like to end the series on a general note by saying how much I have enjoyed digging into my memory bank to find good reasons to thank people. I learned that the more I was grateful, the more things I had to be grateful for! And boy, was it fun recalling fond memories of my transactions with different businesses.
I invite all readers of this blog to think within your own lives to see the goodness in every person, place, or thing. Trust me, it’s there. Once you see the goodness, it will be easier to be thankful for it, in your own special way.
Thank you so much for reading the Gratitude in Alexandria series! Next up is a triumphant return to blogging my book on “A Slice of Faith,” which last ended up here.
