Often times we find gratitude through opposition. That was my morning. We run on a pretty tight schedule on school days, mostly trying to maximize morning sleep time for my son. Add to the pressure of the morning was the fact that today was a MSP testing day. Of course, this would be the morning that I couldn't find the car keys. Normally we keep the keys on this:
It is a sweet feeling to find that which was lost. A feeling of gratitude, as clear cut as it gets.
I can't let the day go by without mentioning friends. Thanks, Denise for saving the day. She is a very giving person and someone I can count on.
Maybe a little opposition in life is good.

The first problem I encounter with this project was there were too many things I am grateful for so I'll have to pace myself. Yesterday was Mother's day. I love my mom and I love my kids and I love my grandchildren. It was the best Mother's Day that I've ever had. Really. That is why I am starting with a picture of Jim. Maybe that only makes sense in my mind but my logic is simple. He is my partner in life. WE love our family. We are making this journey together. I am grateful for him.
