Today I am grateful for many little things
like babies sleeping in my bed, comfortable with
the life they share with me.
Snuggled peacefully before starting their busy day
of learning, playing, and being.
to make myself a better person, to be
whole on the inside and strong on the outside.
I am grateful for the discomfort of my life,
as it has given me the drive and desire to make it better...
to learn how to face the hard times
and emerge more resilient and tenacious than ever.
I am grateful for my amazing children
who take my breath away with their
beauty, innocence, and courage.
They are surely angels from heaven...
I am grateful for their youthful wisdom,
their desire to learn and expand their minds
with all that is necessary to succeed in this world.
I am grateful for our smiles that are
shared together always.
