Gratitude

1148977_10100758582606377_1537477582_nHave you ever had a moment where you are overwhelmed with gratitude? As I sit in our upstairs loft, eavesdropping on Adam talking to our dog about “Top Gear” and telling Senna he’s a good pup, I’m overwhelmed.

Actually, it started yesterday, after our weekend guests headed back to Arkansas. As I was driving home from breakfast, I realized I’m grateful for so many things in my life right now.

I’m grateful for friends who bring light into our lives we didn’t realize we were missing.

I’m grateful for our new church – a place that just “fits” – and the people who have since entered our life.

I’m grateful for the city I call home and I’m constantly in awe of – whether it be breathtaking sunsets, amazing skyline views, or the almost perfect fall weather that’s finally arrived.

I’m grateful for our jobs which allow us to travel and see parts of the world we otherwise wouldn’t see.

I’m grateful for our dog. He’s a never ending source of entertainment and stress-relief.

I’m grateful for family and am excited that almost all of them are visiting us for Thanksgiving this year.

I’m grateful for a husband who makes me laugh when I’m at my lowest point, who loves me everyday, who tolerates 6 women in his house for a weekend and never complains, and who holds my hand because it’s there.

This overwhelming sense of gratitude has a smile plastered on my face.

I can’t remember a time I’ve been so content, so happy, so blessed.

    Megan, this is wonderful! I’m glad to now, from Facebook, that you have a blog. I’m coming through Austin in early November and hope to see you — and introduce you to some of my many favorite UA students. They introduced me to track; Jessica still holds a UA record, and Adam was a stalwart 800-meter runner for John McDonnell’s winning teams. They and their 4 children returned home to Austin to host guests for a NASCAR event, Austin’s first. I have met only the first of the 4 children and am excited to meet all of them. I’m bringing with me on this long road trip a woman who has helped me since I came to Florida with Puppy, who’s now 16, blind and without one eye, deaf…and the love of my life. He’s a 12-pound Shih Tzu.
    So I’ll write you on FB when my schedule becomes clear. I’d love to see you and meet your husband.
    Louise Montgomery
