Gratitude Gifts Today

The month of June is full of celebrations for our family.  Birthdays, anniversaries, Father's Day, summer, end of school - so many reasons to gather and share good times.  I am reminded that our Heavenly Father rejoices and celebrates with us too, not only on one day of the year but daily in so many ways.  And I am reminded to pause and give thanks for all that He gives me  every day - His goodness never ends!
