Thankful Thursday

"Life is not made up of minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, or years, but of moments." Sarah Ban Breathnach

The month has been crazy busy. Every day something special is going on as the countdown to school is coming to an end. Prom, grad parties, trips, award nights, exams and all the prep stuff for the new academic year in the Fall.  

As soon as school is done, we're heading out - going on a road trip - whale watching, spending time together, having fun. No work, no set goals, just taking it one day at a time and taking whatever comes. 

Moments! It used to be so hard for me to live in the moment, but now all these moments pump me with gratitude. Grateful for....
-all the busy....running around, picking up dropping off, watching the faces of my kids light up with every new experience.
-the email I received from a woman I met in the prison. She asked for a copy of my book. She needs hope. Grateful I have something that can give her hope. 
-A woman I know who struggles with some destructive habits, called and asked me how she can forgive herself. We had a long talk about God and faith and hope and peace. She wanted to know how I did it. Grateful I could share the hope in me with her. 
-giving back - helped out with on a community project. Met some incredible people. Loved being a part of them and working together for a cause.
-Mostly that He's there, always. never leaves. a constant. That's what I am most grateful for. Things can change, but He never does.
Have an amazing Thursday, Guys!
