I'm grateful for unconditional love. I'm grateful to have a child in my life that makes my heart swell and shows me what it means to love. I'm grateful for tiny arms wrapped around me and sweet kid kisses. I'm grateful to hear the laughter of a child that struggles to communicate in words. I'm grateful to know he is happy. I'm also grateful for the ability to return that unconditional love, not just to the children that capture my heart but also to my dogs. I'm grateful that my dog seeks me out when she is scared and that I can provide her that comfort even if it means little to no sleep. I'm grateful to give back to her the unconditional love that she gives to me each day as I come home from work. I'm grateful for the love I feel towards every person for the divinity within them. And I am grateful to know that in all this love there is a balance and our needs are always supported. Who supports you? Who do you give unconditional love to each day? How do you maintain the balance of giving and also receiving the beauty of love?
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
