I'm grateful this morning for the truly pure of heart. I saw it last night in the face of two young children. I'm so grateful for the tomato-mouth kisses and the sweet way the little girl rested her head on my shoulder to snuggle as she got tired. It warms and melts my heart all at once. It is a purity and joy that I am so grateful to experience and I often see it in children. I'm also grateful to see it in my dogs. I'm grateful for the way they still run to the door to greet me when I return from work or an errand. I'm grateful that they snuggle me in the morning so we can soak up each others' affection. While they may occasionally do things I don't appreciate, at the core they are my angels. I'm so grateful to have such beautiful expressions of true, innocent, unguarded love in my life. I'm so blessed and so grateful to receive it and return it with my whole heart. When do you see that purity of love in your life? When do you feel the presence of angels? If you are blessed with the opportunity today, take a moment to play with a child, see their smile, and soak up their beautiful laughter. Nothing, to me, is more healing. May your day be blessed with love, purity of heart, and the smiles of angels.
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
