{Monday Motivation} Start Right. Start with Gratitude.

I read this story in Facebook (where else, right?).  It's an inspiring story that reminds us that it is through God's grace that we have people around us, whether a stranger or a friend, who is ready to help us in times of trouble.  Let us be grateful that we have God who can do ALL things!

"And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."  (Colossians 3:17)

Let us start the week with love and gratitude, Mommies!

Recent deadline of the San Francisco Chronicle.  Female humpback whale who had been entangles in a spiderweb of crab traps and line weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat.  She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, tail, torso and a line tugging in her mouth.

A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farallon Islands and radioed an environmental group for help.  Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so bad off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her.  They worked for hours and eventually freed her.

When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles.  Shen then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, and nudged them, pushed them gently around as she was thanking them.

Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives.  The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth said her eyes were following him the whole time, and he will never be the same.

May you, and all those you love, be so blessed and fortunate to be surrounded by people who will help you get untangles from the things that are binding you.  And, may you always know the joy of giving and receiving gratitude.

Thank you, Lord, for making Julia's smiles, giggles, hugs and kisses my alarm clock each morning.  How about you?  What are you thankful for?
