As I sit here, I look around me and see a child washing dishes. Another I hear practicing his guitar, and yet another playing in her room. I am thankful for the place where I am right now. It has been a long time coming to be thankful for this place. I have been restless, wanting more. It is not bad to want more, but when it consumes you, you begin to miss so much of life.
I am tired of missing life and searching for unknown life, when my life is waiting right here for me to live. So starting today, I am going to begin showing gratitude for all things, everyday. I have begun to keep a gratitude journal, and I would like this little space of internet to be a mirror of that journal. A simple life, lived with gratitude and love. My prayer is you can see this reflected on here.
I have missed this little hobby of mine. This blog, my friends that I have made. It is a pleasure to write out my thoughts and feelings, to keep the family updated on the kids, to write vintage recipes my grandmother once cooked. Somewhere I have lost touch with the purpose of this blog. It is not about me, it is about all of you. And I love all of you and thank you for reading.
