A lesson from last month’s post, which you can find here. I learned that gratitude for things, both big and small can be both life changing and life affirming. In the midst of trials, gratitude can impact your life in a huge way. It can move you past those trials towards your destiny, whatever that is. Gratitude can change your perspective on anything.
1st – being able to write words that change women’s lives…even if for only one day.
2nd – for long hikes in dense woods and life-affirming conversation.
3rd – for impromptu living room dance parties.
4th – lazy Saturdays spent with family.
5th – for impromptu visits from friends and delicious and fun brunch.
6th – a body that supports my constant need for activity.
7th – that my family is surrounded by people who support us and pray for us and help us.
8th – for the ability to have access to a wheelchair that helps my child stay mobile while being injured. And having amazing insurance that completely covers the cost of the rental while we use it.
9th – knowledgeable doctors that helped my child and goes to great lengths to make sure she gets the proper care and attention her injury needs.
