The sun is bright and beautiful this Sunday morning, a metaphor that is not lost on me.
Today marks the most holy day in the Christian calendar - Easter Sunday, a day when we reflect on the sacrifice made by Christ, and also God's single most profound gift to humanity.
I won't get all churchy on you all, because that's not my bag, Baby. But I will challenge everyone to think long and hard to find something for which you're grateful.
I am grateful for my gift of life - it is magnificent through every heartbreak and every triumph.
I am grateful for my strong sense of self and destination - I firmly believe God walks this path with me, and I am thankful for the confidence and comfort that instills.
I am grateful for my family and friends - I deeply love each and every one of them, for they have made my life experience infinitely richer.
