    1. grat·i·tude  

      The quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
      gratefulness - thankfulness - thanks - appreciation
  1. Gratitude has really been laying heavy on my heart since my husband has been in Tucson caring for his father. 
  2. I'm extremely grateful that I'm married to a man that his family is on the top of his priority list. He took time off of his job, time away from our family, and gave up his life temporarily to comfort and care for the man that gave him life. It's a huge sacrifice and I'm extremely proud of him. It's a lot easier to be self - absorbed and not take the time to do for others unconditionally.

He made a commitment and he's going to stick with it - that tells you a lot about what kind of man he is... his father did an awesome job!  I'm so grateful that God blessed me with having them in my life. 
  4. I hope somehow he's aware of the sacrifice his son has made for him - he would be proud!
  5. "Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation."
  6. Have a blessed day!

As I was sorting through pictures this morning I came across pictures of my seven-year-old granddaughter with girls that she met for the first time on a 2 day stay in Prescott. I was drawn to the smiles on their faces and the love in their eyes. They met, accepted each other, and acted as if they had been lifelong friends. Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
