November is over…rushing in comes December!
I found sticking to a list of things to seek out and show gratitude was a little more challenging than in past years. How about you?
- One thing worth it’s weight in gold: Neighbors taking pity on us for Thanksgiving dinner after Glenn’s surgery.
- One thing lost, then found: I thought I had lost some pictures I took last Christmas, then found them in the most unexpected place. Why did I put them there?
- One thing restful: Doing nothing on a Saturday afternoon.
- One thing that nurtures my soul: Sleeping in! Seriously, all.week.long.
- One thing in Him: He works in great & amazing ways…connecting myself and a like-minded blogger friend, who lives half way around the world.
- One thing orange: It’s more coral, but in the orange family. This scarf.

So, how did you do with in the month of gratitude?
Your list really encouraged me today Jeri. It has been a hard week and yet somehow through your list, I had the sense that God really loves me so much. That He is so near, thank you for sharing! blessings Aliyah
I hear ya! It’s been a hard month here too. But showing gratitude helps me put it in perspective.
