This weekend I was grateful . . .
- when my 5-year-old got off the bus -- safe and sound -- on Friday . . .
- for a long run with a good friend (thanks, Bridget!) . . .
- for the smiles on my boys' faces when they got home from their Saturday morning outdoor adventure . . .
- for home-baked Christmas cookies . . .
- to be part of a religious community that vibrates positivity . . .
- for an enjoyable Sunday dinner with the family . . .
- for all of my loved ones -- my family and friends, near and far!
It's just a short list. I know there is plenty more that I can -- and should -- be grateful for.
But today, and always, I want to focus on what I can control and what is important, right, and good in my life. I can't do anything change any tragedy that has already happened. I must do what I can. And what I can do is try to reflect some light, because where there is light there can be no darkness.
Shine on, my friends. Shine on!
