Grace In Small Things (GiST)

Based on the recommendation of another blogger, I joined Grace In Small Things. I think that GiST will help me in my recovery because one of the challenges is to think of five positive things every day. I think I would like to do that.

These aren't small things and I'm sure I'll be thinking of those within the week. :)

Here are my five positives of the day:

1. No matter what, I have God's love

2. I am so happy to be a wife, mom, stepmom and nana. Nothing feels so good as to have a life's partner that loves me and cares for me as much as TB does. I am so grateful for my kids and grandkids as well. I have to say the connection a mother feels when she looks into the eyes of her child is an awesome thing and practically indescribable. I feel such a strong bond it about brings me to tears when I think of it.

3. I am so thankful to have a loving and supportive extended family.

4. I find strength and hope from my faith

5. My cats greet me every day. It's true that they depend on me for their food but it feels so wonderful when they come to me when I need comfort. Some of them come to me all the time, whether I have treats or not. I love it when Mouse sits half on my lap to be stroked and loved up. His fur is so soft!

My goal today: practice taking care of my needs by making a point to do my piriformis stretches twice a day. I've stretched this morning already.


My spirituality is my own.
I have chosen the path I am on.
I follow that which I believe to be true.
No one can take that away from me.

From the Bible, Psalm 121:

1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?

2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;

4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;

8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

That reinforces my knowledge and belief that God loves me and is always with me. If God loves me no matter what, I can't be all that bad! :)
