I read this quote last week and I saved it away in my emails... I was going through my quotes today and saw it again. It really made me think, especially since I am such an advocate of facing my fears so that I can have freedom and joy. When I read this and thought about how gratitude can get us there, ever since I have had my surgery, I have nothing but gratitude in my heart daily.
I am grateful for the many wonderful meals that have been prepared for me in the past couple of weeks, for the people that have driven me to and from the hospital for appointments, for the people who came into my home and helped me do the laundry and dishes. For Cindy who is taking amazing care of my Valentina, for Valentina who prays for me nightly, for my friends who keep in contact with me by either calling, texting, facebook messages.... There have been endless blessings sent my way in more ways than I can count.
The most important blessing in my life is my family and my very close friends... I feel gratitude for them everyday...
I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future ♥
