Happy Monday Everyone!
I hope those of you with the day off are enjoying the time, and those of you who had to work (sorry Hubby!) are having a slow, peaceful day.
We had a busy day here today. With a birthday party to attend at 2PM, I had to put Port down for an early nap. He was not a happy camper about it, but he still managed to sleep for a full 2 1/2 hours before I woke him so we could go. He probably would have slept 3 if we weren't going to be late. Poor little guy, I don't think he's getting enough sleep.
So today is Gratitude Monday and honestly, I don't have any one person on my mind. Sure, I could pick someone and write about them on the fly, but I would much rather be motivated by emotion and real, in the moment gratitude than do something forced. Thank you to those who participated, I have enjoyed reading your outpouring of love for your friends.
I am just grateful for so much right now! I am involved in a bunch of new endeavors and exciting projects. I am motivated and working hard on my business, and I really feel like things are headed in the right direction.
And even if they are not, I still feel really good about things right now.
God has blessed me in so many ways. I am looking forward to what He has in store this year.
So, I guess, in lieu of a traditional Gratitude Monday post where I talk about one person, this is a post about...
I am grateful to God for all He has given me. I have nothing without Him.
I am grateful to my family and my friends who are loving and supportive.
I am grateful to my clients who are supporting me in more ways than one.
I am grateful to my church family, who show me love and encouragement and inspiration just by being there and doing what they do.
I am grateful for the opportunities that have fallen into my lap. I can't wait to share them with you.
I am grateful for days like the last few I have had that show me that it is ok to be happy, and hopeful, and excited.
I am grateful for the readers of this blog and all my supporters here, on facebook and in daily life that encourage me to do more and do better.
I pray that I can be all that you think I can be, and feel confident enough in my abilities that I never lose courage and hope for the future.
Because right now, I am encouraged, hopeful, excited and ready for the challenges ahead.
And I don't want that feeling to end any time soon.
Encourage and show your gratitude for someone or something today. It is a freeing, wonderful thing to do.
