Life can sometimes cause us to forget to be grateful for the things we have. Sometimes, our vision becomes clouded with negativity. We sometimes remember the bad more often than the good. Sometimes, we become numb to all of it, reflecting more in the rearview mirror than in the present.
I keep a gratitude stone in my pocket. I have one in my purse too. And every time I find it, I pause to reflect how grateful I am for my children, for my health, for every inhalation of breath I've been allowed. It allows me to break away from life and live in the moment for a few precious seconds.
|My gratitude stone|
Sometimes, it's enough.
