"If the only prayer you ever say in your life is thank you, it will be enough."
Meister Eckhart (1260-1320)
Bright and early this morning I received a text message from my BFF saying good morning, asking about the weather and confirming our plans for tonight...
Before I left, I got a call from a special person - basically just to say - drive safe and have a good morning...
When walking out of the house, my little Bailee just looked at me with his big brown eyes and upon hearing my *high-pitched* nick name for him, flopped over on his back for a tummy rub from "mom"
When I was dropping Bailee off, my dad was standing outside watching me come up the last slippery stretch of the driveway & he was smiling and laughing...As the boo kissed him, I teased dad about how his hair looked like Bail's...I don't think he had combed it yet :) He graciously took Bailee inside for me after we told one another to have a great day...
As I crossed over Paris Mountain, I gazed at the beautiful valley and this wonderful feeling of thankfulness came over me. I'm not crazy by any stretch, but I found myself saying it out loud as if to confirm the feelings within...being grateful is so healing and even as I sit here and type this, my gratitude feels too large to wrap my arms around!
Be blessed on this day that is a gift and have a fantastic weekend!!!
