Thanksgiving

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

I am incredibly thankful this year for my family. For my precious daughter who was meant to be mine. For my loving and eternally patient husband. For my sweet and very loving puppy. For our generous and supportive parents. For my sister who makes me feel better and sane everytime I hear her voice. For my girlfriends who are my family and who love me unconditionally. For the Clark School and the people who work there and the parents that were strangers but are now friends. For answers. For my full heart.

I love this quote above as it speaks to so much of my life right now. My mother always taught me during times of despair to recite what I’m thankful for, but that’s easy to forget to do when you’re older. Remembering to be grateful for what I have not just at this time of year will be my goal. It’s how I want to live my life for Landon.

Cheers to gratitude… today and everyday.
