We so often get caught up in the tough stuff of life that we miss the good things all around us, especially when facing the daily challenges of special needs. So today, I’m beginning a new post called Simple Blessings dedicated to embracing brief moments of gratitude. You can do the same.

Today’s Simple Blessing: While walking my dog, Jack, this morning, we crossed paths with another walker who said with a smile, “beautiful dog and well behaved, too.”

Thank you for sharing that simple blessing with me, and Jack.
