A Happy Heart.


I have so many things to be grateful for. Listing a few doesn't seem adequate for the amount of love and gratitude that is bursting from my soul. Here are the things that instantly come to mind:


::A husband who vacuums the basement carpet [and stairs!] after I go to bed at 9:45. [9:45!]::


::Friends who are willing to bring delicious dinners and make special trips to my house to change the baby's messy diaper::


::Family Home Evening::


::A mom who brought me my favorite dessert from my favorite local bakery just because I mentioned I was craving it::


::Kind emails::


::Mr. Owen. Need I say more?::


::Prayer::


::A fully functional left hand::


::YOU! Thank you for your sweet words, thoughts, emails, and friendships::

  16. Being grateful in the face of a trial is a huge blessing. I LOVE this post Danyelle. It is so easy to feel your happiness coming through the words.

    On a side note, I just glanced at your Twitterings in the sidebar, and now I think I need to make pumpkin pie. Thanks!!

  19. Danyelle, I have so been meaning to call you. In fact I think I tried. My mind is mush this week. I am so very sorry about your injury. But I do realize how blessed you are. Owen is adorable in that picture. And Abby the proud sister too. Take care and I will be able to help you more next week. So I'll get a hold of you then :)

  26. Love that picture! Shows his sense of humor! I love that you put "family home evening." I'm starting to be more grateful for that too. The kids are finally old enough to have really great lessons, and I feel like I learn from their faith. I think about you every day - sorry we keep missing each other on the phone. Maybe after this you'll be ambidextrous!
