If you haven't heard, Toronto was hit by a massive ice storm. Hundreds of thousands of people lost power and many are going on day three without it. Limbs of trees smashed cars and damaged homes. We arrived home from visiting Jenn's family last night (post to follow!) to a warm house and minimal damage. While our power went out, it was only for about one day. We are incredibly lucky.

While I'm grateful for a warm house and electricity, we would be fine without it. It isn't what matters. More than anything, I'm incredibly grateful for the people in my life. For their health and happiness. And for my own. I have been so blessed with an incredible partner, Jenn, who loves me, flaws and all.

It isn't always the big things that cause gratitude to smack us in the face. It is often the teeny tiny things. I'm reminded every single day by my perfect little girls to stop and smell (and admire) the roses. It is often in those little moments that gratitude overwhelms me. It would take me hours to detail why I'm grateful for each and every one of my friends and family. And even then, I don't think that I could articulate those small, perfect moments that have meant more to me than anything. So instead, I will simply say thank you, although that is nowhere near enough.

This 6-minute video was introduced to me about 6 months ago. I watch it constantly. Enjoy :)
