gratitude is a miraculous, wonderful thing. it really does turn what we have into enough. sometimes – often, even – it reminds us that what we have is even more than we need. although it’s kind of a “thing” for people to list something they are grateful for each day in november, this isn’t really that. it’s sort of my mash-up of a daily writing exercise i see people do every day in october paired with practicing gratitude. it won’t be the same every day. sometimes it will be a short, quick post, and other times it will be a reflection or recipe. but most importantly, every day there will be gratitude.
today, i am grateful for our nieces.
being married to dustin has an endless list of bonuses purely based on the man that he is. it’s been hard not to post about him yet – and not just a single post, but multiple posts – but there is a reason for the delay ;o) that being said, one of the things that i was most excited about when we got married was officially being able to call these three beautiful girls my nieces. they are beautiful, smart, silly, creative girls that are growing up so fast into these incredible little ladies.
they are the most fun, confident, unique little girls that i know, which is so special, and yet they share the heartwarming abilities to elicit lots of laughter, bring deep joy, and over flow with love. we miss them so much when we are apart that it hurts my heart, but we treasure the time we get to spend with them. we love you, sweet girls!
