Gratitude Spiral: Day 347

Today, I’m grateful for my husband, who’s celebrating his birthday this weekend.

There are so many reasons to be thankful for him. My life has been blessed for the past forty years, since that November youth retreat to which a mutual friend invited him. My life has never been the same. And I’m grateful. 🙂

Gratitude Spiral: Day 54

Today, I’m grateful for forgiveness.

Forgiveness is a wonderful and terrifying two-way street. Some days, we act rudely, insensitively, thoughtlessly, or mean-spiritedly, and find ourselves seeking to be forgiven. Other days, we bear the brunt of another’s words or actions and need to drag ourselves away from judgement, toward forgiveness. I’m thankful for both opportunities.
