There are times in my day that catch my breath. Moments when I realize what I really have. I have a wonderful Savior that has saved me from all my sins who loves me so much that He has blessed me in incredible ways. I have a husband who loves me that I adore. I have my family that are mostly nearby (with the exception of a sister in the frozen tundra and our extended family). I have amazing friends that sometimes feel more like family than friends. I have a house that is safe, keeps me warm and dry. I have food to fill me up and clothes to cover me. There are times that the realization hits me that these things aren't guaranteed and there are many that don't have them but they are in fact there and mine. The gratitude that I feels just kind of bubbles up inside of me and feels like its just going to explode out of me.
Today I read on one of my daily reads CF Husband and I found out that Tricia got the call on her lung transplant that there are possibly lungs available. My prayer is that in a few months Tricia is home with Nate and Gwyneth that she'll sneak out of Gwyneth's room after kissing her blond head and putting her to sleep she'll start on the dinner dishes and have one of those moments.
