Open the Floodgates to Joy
With One Simple Question:

What am I grateful for today?

My health & the doctors who keep my body in tip-top shape

The hot water that made my shower so great this morning

A nice guy letting me merge in front of him in traffic

Socks straight out of the dryer

Ice cream with chunky goodness

The incredible way crescendos build in music right before the chorus

That I grew up to like brussel sprouts

The comfy bed I crawl into every night (and the way my pillows fit my head perfectly)

Paychecks, health insurance & date nights

The warm, nourishing food in my belly

Any movie with a blooper reel at the end

Internet, and how I can learn about anything I want

The smell of a crackling campfire

The grocery checkout clerk who had such a nice smile

A hug from a loved one.

And that’s just for starters.
(Hint: The possibilities are endless.)

Hi, I'm Karl Staib

I started this site because I struggled with dealing with my father's death. I struggled to be grateful on a daily basis. This led me to write stories of how I dealt with my father's death and I came out stronger on the other side. As I continued to research and write about brining more gratitude into my life I realized I was missing an opportunity not to just deal with my fathers death, but to deal with my daily struggles like traffic, long meetings, money issues and cranky kids.
