Wednesday Ramblings

Gratitude is one of the sweet shortcuts to finding peace of mind and happiness inside. No matter what is going on outside of us, there’s always something we could be grateful for.

-Barry Neil Kaufman

Today, above anything going on in my life, I am grateful for:

1. God’s grace, his constant presence in my life, and the reminder that he never lets go, even when we do.

2. This view. I love it more and more every day.

3. YOU.  You guys make every single bit of effort that I put into this blog 100% worth it every day.  I love it.  I love you guys.  Thanks for being here.  I can’t say it enough!

    I’m grateful you make cookies and blog about them. Don’t even stop! I will cry.
    On a more serious note (although, I’m serious, keep blogging!), I’m so ding dang grateful for my friends and family. Like, I can barely find work to express my gratitude for them!

    • Cassie replied: — April 26th, 2012 @ 6:47 pm

      Sometimes I am grateful that I bake cookies and then I eat them all and I’m not so grateful! You are so sweet, so glad we are friends!
