Hello Tuesday! It is another beautiful, spring morning in central Kentucky and I am grateful to be alive and living it. I am grateful for life and all of the wonderful ways it shows up, sometimes joyous and blissful, sometimes messy and sorrowful. I’m grateful for the ups and downs of life and that it dutifully marches on though our joys as well as our pains, that on one side of this day is a mother mourning the loss of her firstborn and on the other side is a happy birthday celebration. I’m grateful for the balance of light and dark that stitches together to create a rich pattern of life for us to live and prosper, to be hardened and softened, to overcome and to rejoice in. I’m grateful that we are strengthened in weakness, empowered in vulnerability and made wise by our sorrows. What are your gifts today?
