Yesterday, Joey showed me this video. He showed it to me because of one specific thing that he thought I'd like to use for my class I'm starting this week, but what I took away from the video was much more than an idea for my class. I was reminded of a love so pure, so deep, that nothing can change it. Not even a terrible crash. Just watch the video below :
I bet Ian and Larissa have off days, too. But their story is so inspiring. It inspires me to be thankful that mine and Joey's off days aren't too bad. And that the rest of our days are oh so good. That we might have to deal with financial stresses, work pressures, and more projects and things to do than we can ever have time. But we have each other, we're both healthy, we have two healthy boys, we have food, clothing, shelter, we can talk to each other and communicate easily with each other, and countless other blessings.
"Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter
everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments
of awe that change forever how we experience
life and the world." -- Sarah Ban Breathnach
