Listen to today’s Warm and Fuzzy here!
Dr. Joey Faucette tells a story about a woman named Mrs. Glick. And every time you asked
Mrs. Glick how she was doing, she would always say, “I’m thankful for one more day.”
Mrs. Glick lived to be 103. What an inspiration.
Ever since reading that story I have been trying to emulate Mrs. Glick by repeating those
same words when anyone asks how I am doing today. “Thank you for asking. ‘I’m thankful for one more day.’”
I really am grateful to still be here. Almost 22 months ago I was battling a serious illness and just still being here was pretty iffy. So I find myself waking up each day feeling blessed to be alive. Mrs. Glick’s words ring true for my life as well.
We all know that we have no guarantees in life and that each day, whether we acknowledge it or not, when we do wake up to another day, we are on the lucky side of life. It beats the alternative.
Why not take it one step further? Beyond just being grateful and thankful for one more day, how about doing something that will make a difference in someone else’s life? What a cool legacy to leave.
Just like Mrs. Glick. What a cool legacy she left and I am willing to bet she had no idea how her word would make a
difference after she was gone.
Here’s hoping you are both thankful and making a difference today.
