Hi Natalie,
You may have already heard about the book club over at InCourage where we are getting ready to read 1000 Gifts by Ann Voskamp. I'm just getting started with the book but it is to teach us to enjoy each and every moment we are given. Here are a couple of links if you're interested.

I think your post here is beautiful and I thought you might enjoy the book.
Blessings,
Nancy

Thank you for reminding me to be thankful, even when it isn't necessarily easy, yet that's when it's really important.

Thank you for your beautiful and inspiring pictures, they remind me that the everyday has so much beauty and interest to offer, I'm sad to say that I've been overlooking it lately.

thanks to YOU for sweet goodies in the mail.
I'm also grateful for my babies, my sweet husband, my health, enough but not too much (everything), and the gentle way life has of putting the right people in my life at the right time.
