I have been slacking in this area. It is not that I am not grateful; God knows I am thankful every day
I have not been good about my Weekly Gratitude posts and that will change today!
It is Lent; it is a time I often reflect on life, on where I am, what I am thankful for and how I can think about others and sacrifice before obsessing about my own self and my needs.
This week, I am thankful for:
My home; not only our house that we made a home but what home really is to me. That is my husband, my girls, their unconditional love and being at peace. It is also being who I am when I am with them.
Being able to provide for my family, while doing something I love and with the flexibility required to balance it all. The balance is what I am most thankful for. Being able to work AND be present is a gift I never take for granted.
My passion and energy for volunteering. May it never die. When I know that I have inspired just one person to think outside themselves and to fight for kids or the greater good, I feel I have accomplished something.
