Feeling Blessed

flag lr

Today I am feeling incredibly blessed.

Some may wonder how that is possible considering my loss. Sometimes I wonder how it is possible considering how broken my heart feels.

Today I feel blessed because I’ve been on this earth for 43 years ~ today is my birthday ❤

Today I feel blessed because in those 43 years I have had a tremendous amount of love in my life.

Today I feel blessed because I know the love I feel is from God and, in opening my heart fully to Him, I have experienced His glory in way that is indescribable.

Today I feel blessed because, even though I long for and miss Anna and Abigail more than anyone can imagine, I know that they are in Heaven experiencing that same love, the greatest love, in its purest form ALL THE TIME and without any pain or suffering. I am so grateful for this because pain and suffering sucks (just saying).

Today I feel blessed because little Alice took my face in her hands, looked me in the eyes and put her little lips against mine ~ her way of kissing her mama on her birthday ❤

Today I feel blessed because I wake up each morning to a man who loves God with all his heart, loves his wife with all his heart and loves his children with all his heart.

Today I feel blessed to be the mom/Susan of 5 amazing kids. I am so proud of each one of them and truly can’t imagine my world without them no matter where they are.

Today I feel blessed because I have a family that loves me unconditionally and is there for me no matter what. I also feel incredibly blessed that I will have seen and spent time with all of them, Ohio and England family, during the months of May and June.

Today I feel blessed because I have amazing friends that love us, stand by us and who continue to help us navigate through each day by making us smile and by letting us know that Anna and Abigail will never be forgotten. They do this simply by just showing up, always.

Today I feel blessed to live in a small town where people love each other and take care of one another. I love our community so much and can’t imagine ever calling any other place home.

Today I feel blessed because Love Rocks are making their way around the world and are spreading Love and Joy to so many people who need it the most. I am so grateful to everyone in the Love Rocks community for joining us on the journey and for helping us to honor Anna and Abigail’s love drenched lives. This community means the world to me and I am honored to be a part of it.

Today, Memorial Day,  I feel blessed that I live in a country that is free and I am so grateful to the men and woman who have fought for that freedom. Many of those individuals are experiencing the same great love as Anna and Abigail…I am grateful for their ultimate sacrifice.

Today I feel blessed that the sun is shining, the birds are singing and Linus is being mellow  for once ~ wait, he just brought me one of my shoes.

I am blessed today and so, so grateful ❤
