With grace and gratitude everyday, not just today.

Grace-a state of sanctification enjoyed through divine grace

Gratitude-a feeling of appreciation or thanks

“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed.
Happiness is the spiritual experience
of living every minute with love,
grace and gratitude.” Denis Waitley

This is how I feel about my life everyday, not just today on Thanksgiving.  

This thanksgiving break I've immersed myself in spiritual enlightenment, watching documentaries, like Happy, by Roco Belic, reading One Thousand Gifts, by Ann Voskamp, listening to Buddhism for Beginners on Audible, by Thubten Chodron and watching one of my favorite films, Eat, Pray, Love. 
What am I in search of you might ask?  Nothing in particular, except a little reassurance that I'm living my life to the fullest, embracing each moment, savoring the gifts I encounter daily, loving life with all my being.  It's with this grace and gratitude that my heart and soul find peace and love.  I am  seeking ways to assure myself, that this path I'm on, is the right one for myself and my family.  I want to be sure that this ordinary life of mine is truly an extraordinary one for real, not just in blogland or on social media. 

Moments of grace and gratitude fill my photo stream too...of course! ;)
