{thankful} a reminder

When we were on our trip in New York, I fell in love with the cuffs that Heather and Stephanie were 
wearing from Farm Girl Paints. I looked longingly through her shop regularly 
over the past few weeks, and finally ordered my own.

It arrived today, and it was timely.
I chose the word "grateful" because that is what I want to be.
Even on the days when it seems so difficult to see the good, to be appreciative of what we have, 
it's the call on my heart to give thanks. 
Our needs our met, our cups are full, we are blessed.

This week has been hard, for a lot of little - and some kind of big - reasons.
So when I tore open that envelope and saw my cuff,
I knew it was a little nudge to remember what is important.
To be thankful for all we have, which is so much.

So this week, I am grateful for the word "grateful". And for my cute new cuff, of course.

How about you?
Grab a button, share your story, meet some new friends.
