I’ve had a crazy couple of weeks finalizing my divorce and moving. The logistics involved are mind-boggling, but I’m happy to say I’m almost on the other side. When the post I had (somewhat) planned for today didn’t work out, I wondered what I would do to fill this space for the week.
Then, I saw a post a friend shared on Facebook. It was a post from Momastery that spoke to me so deeply, I felt I could have written it myself.
I shared the post and had some friends immediately share it from my Facebook feed.
It’s a post worth sharing here because it’s all about gratitude and perspective. Two things that I have been focused on intensely over the past six months in particular.

“Because each time I am presented an opportunity to leave a trail, I am convinced that the power of my words and the very breath from which I speak have a remarkable impact.”
These words from Chris also spoke deeply to me this week.

Giving is so much more than money and time. It’s about actions and convictions. It’s about modeling the behavior we want others to have (particularly our kids), no matter what your situation. Read these posts and let me know your thoughts. I hope they touch you as much as they touched me.
