Miracle. All of it.

It must be a great disappointment to God

if we are not dazzled at least ten times a day.

  12. I truly believe that when one starts to pay attention and feel gratitude, it does make a difference and you cannot help but be dazzled…. (And, by keeping a gratitude journal for the past 10 years or so, I believe I have been paying attention 😉 )
