small stones of gratitude - day 12

After my hours of illness through the night, where he held my hand & helped me sip water & told me I would get through it: I'm grateful in the daylight hours to still find that shine in his eyes when he looks at me; the words "I love you" not far behind.

(Book lover? You could win one here.)


  1. Adding a few prayers for comfort... and so glad that his I love you was not far behind.

  2. Thanks for your prayers, Teri.
    My hubby-to-be could definitely feature in my "small stones of gratitude" each day!
