Whatever we are waiting for – peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance – it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.
i think that having a baby made me more grateful than ever before. this quotation says it all. all my life, i have waited for the thing(s) that would make me happy and content. i always felt envious of others who have obviously “reasons” for living and going on. i was just going with the flow so to speak. i was looking for that spark to make me feel alive. now i know what i am here for. fate has prepped me well, throwing the right amount of heartaches and disappointments along the way. i used to think that i was destined to be unhappy. but i know now that it was foolish of me to think that. God would never allow us not to realize our own selves and achieve perfect happiness because we were not created that way. in time, my heart became ready to receive God’s wonderful gifts. and i will always, always be thankful to the heavens that they filled my heart and spirit with a joy i’ve never had before.
thank you Lord!
