Today will be a wonderful day. I already know that.
And I already know that I’ll be happy. But not for the reasons you might think.
To quote my new friend Anita:
‘my happiness won’t be because I have a perfect life (no such thing) or because my husband does everything I want (he doesn’t) or because my kids always behave perfectly (they don’t) or because I live in a million-dollar home ( we don’t).’
Today, I’m happy because I’ll focus on everything I do have.
Right now. I’ll step back and appreciate those small moments in my life that have recently lifted me up and touched me somehow. And yes, made me happier. Here’s what I’m grateful for at this moment.
Read along, I think there’s something here that will lift you up too.
I’m grateful for the lovely email I received from Anita at Cedar Hill Ranch which was like a bolt of sunshine pouring out of my computer. I especially loved her views on happiness which prompted today’s post.
Anita is the kind of person who makes a celebration out of drinking her morning coffee. The pretty tea cup. The quiet moments on her back porch. Her best friend’s motto of, “I love my Life!” Anita’s pretty special. Click here to read an amazing post.
I’m grateful that I had the chance to meet and have coffee with Ashley from Domestic Fashionista. And that we lingered over our drinks and had a wonderful conversation about Life and blogging, and we really connected in a deeper way. Ashley’s adorable. And she gave me blogging advice that I still need to follow. Like taking time to find a picture of me for my blog. She thinks readers like to see the real person behind the blog, and I think she’s right.
Every Thursday, Ashley slows down and counts her blessings Click HERE to read more about being thankful…
And I’m grateful that I stumbled on a powerfully written post titled, “My Gay Brother.” Because I love reading stories about real love that bring me to tears. I love hearing about wonderful families that make me feel hopeful about the future. Click HERE to read this post. You won’t regret it.
Today there will be so many moments… to choose gratitude.
I hope this post counts as one of your moments.
Blessings to all my readers!
