Day 10: Finding Gratitude in The Simple Things

Today I'm Grateful For:
1. Laughing on the phone with my cousin until my head started hurting
2. The warmth of my sweet husband's hugs
3. The Eskimo kisses Princess Charlie gives me throughout the day
4. Every time my puppy son feels the need to snuggle me
5. The sweet smell of my green clover soy candle
6. Restful nights and energetic mornings (it's been far too long)
7. The uplifting words that dance across my screen each day
8. The smell of delicious food
9. The gift of hearing, sight, speech and touch
10. All the things and moments that remind me to be grateful

On Monday my two baby nieces loss their dad to a massive heart attack. My baby sister is devastated and I can't wait to get to her, so that I can hug her tightly. Even in this tragedy where tears found each of us we were still able to find peace in remembering how great a dad he was. He loved his babies and my sister's three older kids who were not his own. He treated them all like his kids and for that I am so deeply grateful.

I Believe:
1. That even through tragedy God is there
2. That having faith can bring many blessings
3. In His sweet peace
4. We should never take our loved ones for granted
5. Life is Too short (So take advantage of every given moment)

I SO forgot it was Wishcasting Wednesday!!
This week the lovely Jamie asks: What do you wish to nurture?
I wish to nurture my sister and her two baby girls who have just lost their daddy.
I wish to nurture peace, my heart, my mind and my body.
I wish to always be here to nurture my daughter.

  1. Wow.

    You live out Truth here. You share a grateful heart, and praise Him name, even in the midst of suffering. That's exactly what we're supposed to do. You're "walking the talk."

    My prayers are with you tonight. I'm so sorry to hear this news, yet thankful that your sister has YOU in her life.
