I ended up having to rock Henry tonight at bed again. While rocking him and being grateful for those moments, I reflected on a conversation I had earlier today with a friend about gratitude. I explained that with part of this project and choosing to begin with gratitude, I wanted to remind myself to do this daily. I do not want to get caught up in the day to day tasks and forget how I am blessed in so many ways. I am grateful for my family, my home, my relationships, and job. I am grateful when I hear Andrew helping Henry or when I the boys are playing nicely together. At times though, I tend to overlook being grateful for my health and family’s health and what that really means. It is something that others do not take for granted. So while rocking Henry to bed, I spent that time praying. I prayed for all the moms who know their kisses can’t fix the boo-boos, all the doctors helping little babies and children, I prayed for marriages, I prayed for all the families who needed strength and faith. After I laid Henry down, Todd and I put Andrew to bed. As a family we pray for all the family’s and children who need strength and health. Today, I am most grateful for my families health. Without it, we wouldn’t have the moments we had today.
Today I am grateful,
