Today while me and my little peanut were giggling about how dirty we were (playing in the mud, again) it kinda dawned on me how truly changed my life is. In a much deeper, and broader sense, this little entity has provided me with growth, faith, laughter and a love I could not have imagined. She pushes me to be better, strive farther, dance everyday, and laugh deep.
It is so easy to get lost in our everyday lives, and forget to be thankful for both BIG and the little things in it. With school, jobs, bills, chores, eating, playing, sleep and worries, gratitude can be forgotten.
I am grateful for the life I am living, and all of the opportunities that I have been given, even though I don't always act that way. Sometimes I can be found focusing more on what I don't have. That is a habit I am trying to break.
I believe there are many people in our lives who enter them, and leave us forever changed. Sometimes the changes aren't always evident, and sometimes the changes are HUGe. And we cannot remember the WE we were prior to their arrival.
Today I am taking a moment to be thankful to those who have helped to shape the woman I am today. And at the top of that list, well.... if a picture is worth a thousand words....
What are you grateful for today?
