I came across this quote from my journal in 2006 the summer after my first miscarriage:
"Gratitude, not remorse, should come to be the defining
sentiment of your life....as God's child and someone who has been the
undeserved recipient of His grace, gratitude, whatever your
circumstance, is warranted." - Brad Stetson
Day 17: I am thankful for the hardships I have faced in this life....the unexpected, the challenges, the loss, the heartache, the difficult roads...may I always choose gratitude in spite of my circumstances.
