Marisol and I often have our best conversations just before she goes to sleep, lying next to each other in her bed. Tonight we had a great talk about how grateful we are for our lives and all that we have and what more we can do to help those less fortunate than us.
At one point I told her, "I love you, you're so kind." and gave her a kiss.
She looked right at me, with the softest, sweetest eyes and said, "I have a good influence."
Heart melt. These are the moments that make parenthood so worthwhile! What a gift she is to me.
A new space to record my gratitude, regularly. Inspired by 100 Happy Days. I've realized that "Happy" is not possible for me all the time and rather than feel guilty about that I've decided to embrace what I CAN do - Gratitude. I can always find things to be grateful for - every day, even in my darkest moments. So join me in a million moments of gratitude. The more the merrier (thankfuller??)!
