lucky to wake beside you each morning
lucky to have your laughter flood my life
lucky to have your arms around me when I cry
lucky to have your slobbery kisses on my cheeks
lucky to have you pick up my slack with gentle understanding
lucky to have your forgiving heart
lucky to have you see my truth, even when I can't
lucky to have your grace
lucky to feel at home in your presence
lucky to feel this deeply and fully
lucky to unfold without fear or shame
lucky to have room to move and grow and become
lucky to love and be loved
lucky to have my two guys

Lovely. There are fewer things in life that are more OPEN than gratitude...'cause it's hard to feel any conflicting emotion when one is genuinely in a grateful place.

Keep that line.
And the picture. I adore clover! I would love to have it growing in the windowsill of my kitchen. Beautiful.

My day started out lovely and luminous then it quickly fell over a cliff into a pit of self-doubt. Thank you for showing me the way back. Your gratitude reminded me of things I should be saying to my son. I am grateful for you and your faithful blog. xo- snowsparkle

it's amazing how a "starter" (or, youthful) marriage can make you so extra grateful later on, when the real thing comes along (not sure if this is true for you, but it is for me).....anyway, you're very lucky.
