For all that this day brings, I will be grateful. It has not been that way always when facing a Monday like this one. But today, I will live by grace. I will surround my heart with gratitude. I will continue to count my gifts.
#16 Her toothless grin yelling "Daddy!" as she comes running.
#17 Finding peace in the midst of fear
#18 Sweet words from a sweet friend to make my morning
#19 The connectedness of my biological family
#20 Finding roots in my husband's family
#21 Moments like these
#22 A weekend to rest, to find my soul again
#23 A job that feeds us, but also feeds those I serve
#24 Finding hope for the hopeless
#25 The wisdom of the ages reminding me to "let my heart be broken by that which breaks the heart of God"
#26 The rustle of the last few leaves clinging to life
#27 Clinging to a Life Well-Lived today
