The Spirit of Gratitude
Today is my estimated due date! It is amazing to think about how fast this pregnancy has gone, and that it won’t be long until I finally get to meet Baby Kashiwagi face-to-face. ♥ The journey has been incredible.
In the spirit of thanksgiving, I am eternally grateful for my family. Each member shows me love in such a unique way, and for that I am blessed. My husband is my rock – especially as we prepare for our child at this time – & I am so happy that our marriage is founded upon the teachings of Jesus Christ.
My favorite part of each day this week has been visiting my 2-year-old brother. When he hears the front door creak open, he runs to give me a huge embrace while saying “hi!” in the sweetest, most genuine tone. Children sure have a way with words. 😉 I will leave you with a thought that hits home for me:
“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
What are you grateful for?
