I love Monday mornings, I think I am strange, especially after reading the news-feed on Facebook. And I guess if I was having to leave my home and family for the next five days I might not like it either. But here, Mondays are a fresh start to a new week, they hold promise, routine returns. I love it.
Living in a state of gratitude is life changing. It is fresh, like His mercies renewing every morning. It can make the ugly smaller when you try to find the beauty.
Oh, I'm not living in dream land. I have struggled with some disappointments and worries just this weekend. But, I have noticed that when I focus on thankfulness I do not have to let those things suck the life out of me.
Recognizing the moments, fleeting, and fully living in them.
So much to be thankful for.

102. the twinkle in his eyes ♥
103. the warmth in his voice ♥
105. sparkling clean sink ☺
107. my sweet man (from 102 & 103) who smiles and winks as he helps me with laundry. ♥
