Grace in Small Things, #53

1. Meeting with Sabine’s teachers for conferences; watching their faces open up with smiles as they talk about her; reassurance, for me, that she is doing okay, loving her life

2. Looking in my mom’s eyes, her hands cupping my face as she tells me my life is okay

3. Not giving in to the despair I feel

4. Finding simple solutions to some small but annoying problems

5. Lake Michigan stretching to the horizon; the setting sun taking a bath in its cold, blue water. Calm, calm, calm, breathe in, breathe out

Being grateful is great. Go and give it a try.
