“Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart”

There are so many blessings in my life to be grateful for, and I decided to write down to share a few of mine with all of you. Maybe take a minute for yourself to make your own list. Sitting down to do this was such a refreshing game changer in the midst of a crazy day. I was also surprised by a few of the things that popped into my mind as I was writing… you’ll see. 😉 It’s become a practice of mine to count my blessings, thanks to my mom, especially when certain moments in life are feeling so out of my hands, it’s a good time to remember what is in place to be thankful for. Here I go…

Onto the Pancakes!

Life. It’s such a wild ride, isn’t it? If I could share every detail with you, and I’m sure if you could share every detail of your life with me, we would stand staring at each other with our hands over our mouths surprised by the challenges and heartaches we face as we go about our daily lives. But I guarantee you, if we stood with each other sharing all of our blessings, we would be smiling and so happy for one another.

My friends have become a lifeline for me, a huge blessing! They have given me a safe space to share my highs and my lows. Truly, they inspire me, teach me, encourage me, and their presence in my life nourishes my soul!

The last several months have been busy… I like being busy, so I feel like I say …
