"When asked if my cup is half-full or half-empty, my only response is that I am thankful I have a cup." Sam Lefkowitz
While thinking about what I'm grateful for.... so many things jumped into my head....things like:
-My sister and I met for lunch.....we laughed so hard it hurt. Having struggled alone for so long.....I'm so grateful for the bond between us.
-The other day while driving home we spotted an owl. We ran through the field to get a closer look and cheered as it spread it's huge wings and flew right over us.
-Sometimes I give up too quickly on something if it's too complicated. I was ready to do that with something I wanted. A good friend refused to let me do that. She pulled me to meet the top person in charge and the two of them promised they would fast track all the papers to ensure what I wanted would happen quickly.
-Some of my friends complain about not being able to talk with their kids or that they wish they had a better relationship with them....I''m grateful I have a really tight bond with both my kids.....everytime I look at them I'm reminded just how much God really loves me.
-And my cup....it really overflows with so much of His love...I think of all those people who tried to change me.....tried to force me to be what I couldn't....their version of who I should be. He never did that. I'm grateful for His gentle patience that never forced me to be what I couldn't be. He gave me freedom to be me...the me I was meant to be.
