i feel like i have found the secret to my success, and that is gratitude.
it is the answer to just about any quandary and if implemented, can solve or lighten most of life's trials and hardships.
i have so so much to be grateful for, number one being a healthy family. (of course, we've been sick more times than i care to count in the last few months, but those illnesses are nothing in comparison to what others live with on a daily basis.)

my friend Kami lost her little girl Afton this week - born incredibly early weighing in at just 12 ounces.
at times like these i feel incredible sorrow for friends, immense gratitude for my blessings & a sense of "what can i do to help?" even though her incredible battle against the odds was lost, with the help of modern medicines in the NICU and other departments, they had several days to spend with her. with the "what can i do to help" question still lingering i was excited to hear about Helping Hands Bank - a breastmilk donor system that helps sustain the lives of infants in the NICU.
maybe you're like me, a deep freezer filled with unused breastmilk, i may use some, but i could never use all before it expires, if you're like me you'll be glad to know there are local options. Helping Hands Bank makes it incredibly easy and they will pick-up or ship your donations for free!

i hope you all have a lovely thanksgiving!!
