with an open heart

As we express and share our gratitude with ourselves or others,
we become more aware of it…

As we gathered around last evening at our monthly family dinner and shared some thoughts with each other, it was a wonderful moment to relish in the joy we all felt surrounded by our love for each other.  Those “moments” created what will always be a cherished memory for this year.  Hearts a little more tender since our last meeting, knowing time with family is so precious and should be cherished.  We are grateful that they give up their time — and join us for this monthly dinner.  Our hearts are filled when we see them and can spend time with them.

Mom didn’t join us… it was another day of  “I’m too tired” and she couldn’t get herself out of bed, let alone eat a delicious meal catered by the kids.

I’m sad she didn’t have the opportunity to share a meal or cuddle with the baby — I am grateful, however, she was with us in spirit and each of our children were grateful to know she was just in the other room and each bid her a beautiful farewell as they left for their homes across the valley at the end of the evening.

As I look at the monitor, she is awake, her light is on and I’m sure she’ll be making her way out here in a little bit wearing her beautiful smile, have a twinkle in her eye  — anxious to get a start on a day —

Enjoy your day — and week.  Surround yourself with those you care most deeply about and cherish the moment.
