Gratitude is the best attitude - Author Unknown
I truly believe that being grateful makes me a happier and better person. Life is about the moments and being able to be grateful makes those moments rich. It's easy to get caught up the pitfalls and drudgery of everyday life, for we all go through hassles, problems, and issues. Being able to overcome setbacks is a blessing and recognizing that opportunity is a gift.

I wasn't feeling too great on Monday and Jonathan made me a delicious pot of homemade chicken soup. It was delicious and he was so careful to fill it with things I love, garlic, leek onion, tender chicken and fresh thyme. I'm blessed to have such a loving husband.
