In the midst of deep pain and sadness it can become a challenge to stay truly and deeply grateful.

When we try to see past those tears and seek out the beauty and light in our lives, a miracle occurs. We start to notice the small, blessed things in life again. A kiss from your love, that toddlers hug, the sweet heavy scent of nearly summer, the sound of busy birds in early morning, raindrops on the roof, special memories you hold dear, the smile of someone you love, a nice cup of coffee or tea.. the list is endless.

All those precious moments are gifts. Gifts to keep in your hart, forever and ever. Even though some of it may end eventually, it stays with you.

They are truly a blessing.

Love my pumpkins so much and I’m very grateful for everything we encounter together.

For all the moments we hold each other close.

Blessings to all who have to deal with the loss of a loved one.

Tears can bring relief and love when shared together.
