I thought about not blogging today because I'm tired.
But Fridays are when I stop brainstorming writing ideas and Instant Messaging my son in New York and focus on being thankful. It just seemed wrong--and lazy--to not take the time to consider my reasons to be thankful.
I am grateful for the time I had to walk with my husband and hold hands and talk. Nothing elaborate--just uninterrupted time.
I am grateful that tomorrow is a day for me to pray and plan and ponder which way do I go in the coming months.
And I am grateful that when I least expected it my life was changed by the unexpected blessing of my late-in-life child. I don't think I say that often enough. I get so busy being her mom that I don't stop and say how happy I am to be her mom.
Now that I've written that down, I need to say it out loud to my daughter.
May your day be anchored in gratefulness.
