"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.It turns what we have into enough,and more.It turns denial into acceptance,chaos into order,confusion into clarity.....it turns problems into gifts,failures into success,the unexpected into perfect,and mistakes into important events.Gratitude makes sense of our past,brings peace for today and and creates a vision for tomorrow." Melodie Beattie ...... Today I awoke thankful.Thankful for all that surrounds me. The beauty of those that remain constant in my life.The place that we,as a family find ourselves dwelling, in this very blessed moment.Today as I sent prayers to many, near and far, for strength to pass through what this day will hold for each and every one of them and most especially their children,today I feel extreme,unwavering ...... gratitude.

Zoey in her very cute new chair.Not very practical for a child who can't sit on her own yet,as witnessed by photo number two but way too good of a deal to walk by on a sale aisle, at one of my favorite stomping grounds ......Target.

What a beautiful sentiment... one we should strive to remember every day! Thank you for jogging my memory tonight! :)

Okay, now I've got to check our Target next time I'm there. Too stinking cute!!! Chelsea love pulling Logan's little chairs around the house and sitting in them ... right in front of the TV, or right on top of you, or any other place that's utterly inconvenient! Give Miss Zoey smooches from us here in KS!

What an amazing quote...you always find the best ones! I am glad you woke up with such a sense of gratitude today...what a great place to be!! I do believe it unlocks the fullness of life as the quote states...and sadly sometimes I forget to use the gratitude key to unlock it all...thanks for the reminder! :)

Zoey looks adorable as always...so smiley!!
