This past week I was really challenged to look at everything in my life to find the little nuggets of gold sprinkled though out my life. As Winston Churchill said: "Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference." He was so right. No matter what is going wrong (and believe me in this house there are days when not much goes RIGHT!), we need to look for the little jewels that God has left for us to encourage us and keep the hope in our hearts alive. Every day may not be good, but there's something good in every day.
So many blessings to count on this day...
