TGIF: Gratitude for Hope

Today I am grateful for hope.  I have been very sick this year and it has taken a toll on my spirits some days.  Having a practice of gratitude has really helped me to keep hope and excitement for life alive and well within me.  After almost a year of unknowns and chronic illness, I saw a specialist today that gave me real hope for recovery.  I had resigned myself to chronic pain and this glimmer of hope felt like a blessing wrapped in a joy after having given up any hope of pain-free days. I can't express how grateful this makes me.  I am just feeling bathed in grace.

"Gratitude and hope!  With these anything is possible."
