Thankful Thursday



"Kindness is like snow. It beautifies everything it covers" Kahlil Gibran.

Woke up to gobs of snow....everything's white....everything looks magical...It's a beautiful winter wonderland outside. And on the news...there's been story after story of people stopping to help a friend...a neighbour....a stranger. Today I'm grateful for.....

-the beauty of snow and the kindness of strangers.....
-my niece who was recently diagosed with aggressive breast cancer...that she's feeling strong and hopeful. Please pray for her guys...She's got a little boy....and we all need her to be okay.
-Snowball fights with my girls...
-for the amazing connection with the man in my story...a real life hero. I'm flattered that he bought my first book....and open to my staying in touch with him.
-Most of all....that He touched me and coloured my world with incredible love. I see that love everywhere now...in the gently falling snow....in strangers who happen by to offer their help and support...in my family and home and community.  His love....it's what I'm most grateful for...

This is such a lovely post. I also love the picture. I wish we had snow here in the UK. We did have a few flurries the other day but mostly rain which are causing bad flooding. snow does beautify everything and bring out the kindness and love in people. I will pray for your niece. I hope 2013 is a good year for you and treats you and your family well. Hugs.
