This week I am most grateful for the kindness of people. It has been a stressful week but everywhere we went we met (sometimes just for a second) people who went out of their way to be kind. I am grateful for the quick smile from a stranger, the incredible amount of time my husband's doctor spent with him, the down and dirty CPR class I received from my trainer, and all of the kind words I received from fellow bloggers. In the midst of all our unexpected medical adventures this week, we were getting the inside of our house painted. I am so grateful to the painters who went out of their way to do lots of extra things that we had not asked for but that they realized would make our lives easier.
Each day comes with its own special moments. As I continue this practice of gratitude, I become more and more convinced that even in the midst of very trying times there are many many moments to appreciate and be grateful for. I believe when we slow down and take the time to notice and appreciate each moment our lives become even more blessed. This week has certainly proven that to me.
What are you grateful to have experienced this week?
