I'm grateful for February and all the pink and red that has filled my house! I'm grateful for the little monkey fighting me for my chair right now. I'm grateful for my mom and her pampering love! I'm thankful for my dad and how he is fully present with my children when he visits. I'm grateful for a park in my neighborhood. I'm grateful for forgiving children. I'm grateful for a patient husband. I'm grateful for Steven Tyler on American Idol! (Can I say that? I love that guy!) I'm grateful that today is Friday and this week is over! I'm grateful for a Valentine's party tomorrow and for a birthday party Sunday for one of my favorite 3 year olds that makes me feel like I'm the greatest Auntie ever! Most of all I'm grateful that I do know someone greater than myself and that even though I sometimes don't choose to focus my life on Him, He waits patiently for me. Always forgiving. Always loving. Always present.
Now it’s your turn – take a few moments to reflect on all the blessings from this past week and cultivate your grateful heart!
