The Vintage Soul is a Very Gentle Soul

Wednesday, August 7, 2013


Much time is being spent these days ..  in reflection and gratitude.  With each passing day I am more aware of the Gift of Gratefulness.

I am continuously reminded of the blessings in my life, all those beautiful things I don’t ever deserve.
It’s quite easy to get caught up in what I don’t have. Things both missing and taken. But I don’t have to look far before I’m humbled again by these precious gifts.
Life continues in the pain as i navigate my way through this process of grieving.  Constantly reminding myself of Life's blessings ..  not to minimize the loss(es) ..  but to put into perspective everything I've been given.


  1. I too, am going through the stages of grief, having lost my sister at 63 4 months ago. Your post is a beautiful reminder to me to cherish what we have, all gifts from our Lord and God. God Bless You.

  2. It is a good place to be. This image speaks so much. I think of you often. And whisper a prayer. Gentleness I send, Kerrie
