I Can Only Imagine

Gratitude List 20/10/2018

Last night my kids and I watched a very touching film called ‘I Can Only Imagine’. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. A film about a Christian singer with a strong underlying message of faith, divine intervention, change, forgiveness and love. Afterwards, when I climbed into bed, I shed a tear or ten for my mum. If you’ve seen or watch the film, you’ll know why. I miss her dearly. Why am I writing about this in my gratitude list? This is why….

I am grateful I am in touch with my emotions. Good and bad. I am no longer emotionless.

I am grateful I can cry in front of my girlfriend.

I am grateful that I woke up this morning and read a message from a friend expressing gratitude towards his mum on her birthday. So happy for them.

I am grateful I feel I connected with my mum. I can feel her around me. I can feel her warmth. I can feel her love. I can feel her in my heart.

I am grateful that when I think of her, I smile.

I am grateful I believe she can hear me.

I am grateful to still have my dad and that our relationship is stronger than ever.

I am grateful I believe my mum is looking down at me with pride. I always believed she could see me when I was causing harm and destruction.

I am grateful I feel she has forgiven me.

I am grateful I have very fond memories of my mum and plenty of photos to back them up.

I am grateful for the 28 years we shared together.

Grateful for the memory

Highgate Woods, this morning.
