I’ve started keeping a gratitude journal again. It’s a simple thing, really, just write down three or five things at the end of each day that you’re grateful for.
So every week (hopefully Sundays, but not this time) I’m going to choose three from each week and share them here. The trick will be that nothing on my lists is allowed to repeat soon!
This week, I’m especially grateful for:
1. Good men and women of all faith traditions who serve God’s children in a variety of ways. I was in Cincinnati at Time Out for Women this weekend, a conference/retreat for LDS women and friends. As a spare-moments project, we colored alphabet flashcards that will be used by Catholic Charities to teach reading to immigrants. What a great idea!
2. Sunny days and rolling hills to drive through, instead of the downpours that made things treacherous on the way here. And much more delightful than the straight, flat roads of Central Indiana.
3. That things calmed down enough this week so my mind was easy and relaxed and I could write again! I worked on a chapter and a half of RESCUE Through the Shimmer of Time and it felt lovely.
That’s my three. What are you grateful for this week?
