I'm so grateful for the beautiful leaves as they change colors this Autumn. I'm grateful that our last bush has joined the shift as it's leaves begin to turn a beautiful golden yellow. I'm grateful the wind has slowed so I can enjoy the leaves, in all their beauty, a little longer. And I'm grateful to find moments to stop and photograph this beauty so I may share it. I'm grateful to live in such a beautiful area that is blessed with this change each year.
I'm grateful for my mom and my mother-in-law today who raised my husband and I to be loving parents. I'm grateful for all the sacrifices they made and all that they gave each of us as we grew. I'm grateful for all the love and support they give to us now as we live the adventure of parenthood ourselves. I'm also grateful for all my mom friends who have been a wealth of knowledge and support even in the wee hours. I'm grateful to admit that even with years of experience with kids there are things I do not know. And I'm so grateful for those who have walked the path and have guidance for me. I'm grateful that two friends, in particular, that have been a huge support for me are also family. I'm grateful and blessed to have such wonderful cousins that they are truly friends as well.
Who are you grateful for today? What beauty can you find in this moment? What blessings are waiting to be acknowledged?
May today bless us all with family that are friends and friends that are family. May we find gratitude filling our hearts as we see the beautiful blessings around us. Have a beautiful day!
