This afternoon, Maria had her last “Cotillion” at Prestonwood. A part of that was a chance for me to dance with her a couple of times.
There were a lot of kids and parents there that we knew from different parts of life….Maria’s school…church…sports, etc….
It’s amazing to see how all these boys and girls are growing up into great young men and women.
But the chance to dance with Maria and note this important moment in life, I am thankful.
(During this year, my goal is to find something new to be thankful for every single day, and to add that thanksgiving as a blog entry, under the title “My Daily Gratitude.” I started this kick back around Thanksgiving, and it’s already resulted in a favorite new song of mine. The goal of this ongoing spiritual exercise is to see if doing such a thing might inspire even more gratitude within me, and to foster general awareness of life on a deeper level.)
