Zoom in on Gratitude: Days 2-4

Day 2- Smile

This is the smile that has been lighting up my days for the past 13 years.  I am thankful every single day for my son, my first baby.

Day 3- Happiness

This is happiness.  Right now.  My husband and I have shared hours the past few weeks with our hands on my belly, feeling our little girl squirm, and bop, and poke.  This pregnancy has truly been a blessing for us.  There was a time not so long ago that I believed I may never feel a baby move within me again.  We are so thankful and blessed.

Day 4- Leaves

Fall is my favorite season.  Hands down.  The gorgeous leaves.  The smell.  The crunch under your feet.  I have always loved fall.  As a little girl, I remember my mom having my sister and I run outside and find pretty fall leaves.  We brought them into the kitchen and then laid the leaves under paper and colored crayons over top, capturing the shapes and veins of each leaf. My mother cut them out and then hung them up all over the kitchen.  It was beautiful, and I have been in love with the season ever since.  Despite my many complaints about the snow and freezing temperatures of winter, I could never move South.  I could never give up fall.
