"The more gratitude that we have for everyday basic things, that then expands into more and more things." --Lee Anne Peters
When I was working on gathering quotes for 30 Days of Gratitude, I realized quickly that I did not have thirty quotes about gratitude in my database yet. I started to worry and second-guess myself, maybe I should have picked a different focus for the month, one that I knew I could complete.
What I heard immediately from The Universe was, "I will provide all the inspiration you need this month. Trust." And already I am seeing that this is true.
Yesterday I posted a quote from Matthew McConaughey at the Oscars and today the quote comes from the Monthly Guidance for March from Lee Anne Peters of Temple of Balance. Gratitude quotes are springing up out of nowhere and I am certain that by the end of the month I will have more than I need to complete the thirty days.
It's all about Trust.
Trust that The Universe will provide. Trust that you are on the right course. Trust that you will be okay.
And trust in the power of gratitude this month to expand into more and more good, more and more gratitude.
Today I am grateful for:
1) My husband - who fought with me all weekend. For not giving up and sticking with me through thick and thin, good and bad, better and worse.
2) My church - For being a place of JOY.
3) Family movie night - my younger son is reading the Harry Potter series for the first time and as he finishes each book, we are re-watching the movies together as a family. "Order of the Phoenix" was last night. This was/is the hardest one for me because Umbridge is such a reprehensible character, and it is quite satisfying to see her carried off by satyrs towards the end.
