Do you have moments in the day, week, month, where you’re stopped in your tracks with overwhelming feelings of gratitude?
I do. It’s usually the small things that cause my heart to swell with appreciation and thanks.
Like these tulips. They were a hostess gift to me last week and oh, how I have enjoyed having them! Tulips are my favorite flower, and they were my sunshine during the last several wet, stormy days.
Speaking of sunshine, this girl lights up my world. Lately, I’ve been so taken with her sweet, cheerful and pleasant demeanor. How did I get so lucky?

Truth be told, I know that luck is only part of it. Timing and waiting are a big part of this game we play called life. And for the last several years, “bloom where you’re planted” has been my mantra. Only, I’ve grown very impatient waiting on the blooms. Then, today I read this very inspirational quote at Celebrating Everyday Life. The words leapt off of the page, into my heart, and quieted my anxious soul. The same soul that had just moments before called out in prayer, “Give me a sign that my time will come.”
These are a few of my favorite things this on this quiet Friday at home.
See you in class,
