Trusting, Grateful, Inspired Fridays

BrenĂ© Brown in "The Gifts of Imperfection," has conducted research suggesting that being grateful leads to joy.  In my journey toward healing after stillbirth, I hope to bring joy back into my life, and maybe even somehow to the lives of others.  To be more intentional about expressing gratitude, Brown started a TGIF section on her blog each Friday: “Trusting, Grateful, Inspired Fridays.”  I LOVE this idea and it fills my soul.  I hope you join me in expressing what/who you trust, what/who you are grateful for, and what/who you are inspired by.  Who knows, maybe even a little more JOY will enter your life. 

So, for this week, here is my TGIF:

I am trusting that although Quinn died, I can still live a full and happy life.
I am trusting that I can be the most awesome mom to Riley.

I am grateful for my friends and family who have shown nothing but pure love and support to me, Josh, and Riley.
I am grateful for my mornings with Riley when we get to sing in the shower, dance in the bedroom, and start off the day with lots of giggles.

I am inspired by the strong women who have walked the path of stillbirth ahead of me and help show me the way.
I am inspired by stories of love and resiliency.

Happy Friday and I hope joy is part of your day.
