Life is Grace

discoveries of grace in my messy and imperfect, but blessed, spoonie life

It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.

–Laura Ingalls Wilder

I find it interesting that the older I get the truer this is! A small bouquet of tulips, a letter from a friend, my husband’s dimples, snuggles from my cocker spaniel, crabapple blossoms in early May…it really is about the little things, after all.

How about you, my fellow fibro fighters? What are a few of the small, sweet things that matter in your life, that help keep you going despite the pain, depression, and fatigue?

    Thunderstorms! 🙂 I get so excited and even more so if we are in a tornado watch/warning. I have always wanted to be a storm chaser. We only get them for a few months but it gives me a chance to look forward to every spring. Hmmm daily I would say cuddles with my dog and seeing my mom. She’s my rock and best friend!
