Gratititude

I’ve been trying all day to write a post, but they all come out sounding really depressing – and seriously, do you need help finding something to be depressed about? If so, I suggest turning on the news . . . there’s plenty of sadness to go around.  Then I had to remember that there’s plenty of happiness too . . .

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity… It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.” —Melody Beattie

I’m so happy that they found this baby and that she was alive and okay. Her little eyes look so serious and old. How could someone want to hurt a little doll like that? I’ll never understand it, but today I’m greatful that she’s okay, and I’ll be praying that she has someone who will take good care of her.
