ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE
Gratitude is a memory of the heart.
“Life should not be this hard” used to be my mantra. Then I realized if I am busy being grateful for what I have, I don’t have time to think about what I don’t have. I also began to wonder what God was asking of me in these trials.
Raising a son with special needs has been overwhelming at times. I was envious of others who had children that sailed through school and life. Eventually I learned that God wastes nothing and would use everything we were experiencing for good. God has chosen me to be Eric’s mom for a purpose and I needed to share our journey with others.
Our circumstances may remain the same but gratitude opens our hearts to God’s presence and His peace.
