Multitude Monday

There is a lot to be thankful for. Whenever the temptation comes to be discontent, dissatisfied or bitter, finding things to be thankful for is a great way of escape.

I'm thankful
196. Moriah is with us another day.
197. Moriah didn't sustain any severe injuries from her fall when so many others aren't so fortunate.
198. Moriah's sweet, excited smile.
199. Moriah's smiley greeting whenever Jeramy, Grandparents or I enter.
200. I've not changed Moriah's poo diapers in a week.
