1. Such a powerful post, Lori! I am writing this through tears, as I recognize my own lack of gratitude and joy in my own heart! You’re right, our circumstances certainly pave a course for us, but they shouldn’t rob us of our gratitude and joy, especially if we’ve been rooted in those attitudes.
    My favorite line: “The seed of ordinary thankfulness, watered by God’s grace, can sprout into a life of gratitude.”
    This is what we should all be seeking and guiding our kids toward!
    Thank you!!!

    1. You are right about guiding our children. They imitate us at our best and at our worst. I have no doubt your son has been witnessing lots of love and grace in you. Your soft heart and kind words have meant so much to me. You are a blessing!

    1. Thank you for reading each week. When someone like you (who truly knows a detour) responds, it means more than you know.
