I know I had mulled about starting a gratitude blog, but as always, there are a hundred and one things that have gotten in the way of my doing that. It hasn’t stopped me from being thankful for the blessings I have received.
Like this Sunday afternoon, I’m thankful for this little tyke who continues to try my patience as he goes exploring about this big world around him — even if he bit off a chunk of my face sponge (the original one that came with the Lancome compact).. because he is a constant source of sunshine in my life..
Happiness is holding him in my arms or watching his chest go up and down as he breathes while fast asleep… it’s feeling his tiny hand holding mine even as he is in dreamland, or as we walk from room to room in our tiny home.
And for that and the other hundred things that make me feel so lucky to be who I am, I am grateful.
