Day 15I am grateful for the close relationship that Audrey and I share. I am grateful every time she says, "I love you, Mommy," or "You're my best friend in the whole wide world," or when she simply and quietly holds my hand. I pray that as she grows we will maintain this closeness.
Day 16I am grateful for my health and, of course, for daily check ups from my favorite doctor.
Day 17Today I am grateful for my faith, which carries me through the good times, as well as the times that seem unbearable, and everything in between. I am grateful for a God that is limitless in His love, support, encouragement, patience and forgiveness.
Day 18I am grateful for chocolate. As with bacon, I don't think I need to elaborate any further.
Day 19I am grateful for a good book and for the escape it provides. Nothing compares to climbing right inside another world, befriending and investing in the characters and leaving reality behind.
Day 20I am grateful for my education. More than the actual facts I've learned, I am grateful that I had the opportunity to learn. I am grateful that I had wonderful teachers, both in high school and college, that not only taught me facts, but how to think for myself and question what I learn.
Day 21Today I am incredibly grateful for the sunshine! I am grateful for the warmth and the promise of the coming spring and longer days.
That's it for now. Is there anything you are particularly grateful for this week?
