God is Able

It’s been a pretty sweet few days.  A bit of peace and hope have made their way into my heart.  I’ve been reading some excellent books on faith and it’s connection to gratitude.  Yup.  Gratitude.  It’s  not just for Thanksgiving anymore.

I may not know what tomorrow will bring, but today I’m choosing to allow myself to be happy.

Each day I ask Parker to go out of his comfort zone and work on a new skill that will help make his life better.  If he can wake up willing to work hard and at times even be a little uncomfortable as he reaches to achieve his goal, then so can I.

So can I.

What is YOUR one word?
