Here are a few reasons why Barbara Duncan is #FeelingGrateful…

1.      I'll will never stop being grateful for... my Life.  I believe life is the most precious gift on earth. The fact that God loved me so much to breathe life into my soul makes me grateful. As a result, I have the privilege and honor of being the mother of my two beautiful daughters, Amber and Deria.

2.    My favorite way to say thank you is… I use my actions to show gratitude toward others for the love that has been shown to me. And by worshiping and honoring God through the use of my gifts to make the world a better place!

3.    The best thank you I've received is… my ability to be loved and my ability to give unconditional love effortlessly.

4.    When I was a kid, I didn't realize how grateful I should have been for… my grandmother. My grandmother was my role model. She taught my about God and how to love myself and others. She taught me what it meant to have integrity and stay true to my authentic self.

5.     (Bonus) The attitude gratitude help me to...become the person that God intends for me to be. My attitude of gratitude makes me a better person! Feeling grateful produces positive energy effortlessly!!
