Mel this post is timely and a nice little reminder that I needed. With the frustration of forced limitations of a fractured foot, 6+ weeks in an aircast and no running being grateful can be a struggle.

Thank you :)

Mel, this is such a sweet post. I love the doodling on your page with the hearts, and also how you separated each of your thankful things with heart shapes. Just adds to the sweetness and your gratitude shines through. Well done, my friend. ♥
