Blogmas Day 23 / Gratitude of the Past // March 2012

Couldn't think of a better time than to share what I'm grateful for in this beautiful life. Whether it was from almost 4 years ago to 4 days ago to even 4 hours ago, I've learned to find gratitude at the end of the day because there is never a reason to go to bed upset. I will never deny having hard and trying days, because those days can teach us the biggest lessons in life.
