The Gratitude Project: Week 33

"I felt as though I caught a simple, modern-day glimpse of what Mary must have felt so many centuries ago." This week's Gratitude Project explores some moments which made this mama's heart smile - and, reminded her of simple beauty even when the rest of the world around us is heavy. What are you grateful for this week?

The Gratitude Project: Weeks 31 & 32

"Therefore, last week went by with nary a word written. And, this week, I decided my soul whimpers a little when I don't make time to write. However, I can't find more than 24 hours a day in my life, and try as hard as I can, I don't have the energy when everyone else is asleep around me at the end of the day, to break out my computer to write. So, I have combined last week's Gratitude moment with this week's, praying that this doesn't become a monthly project, rather than weekly!" What are you most grateful for this week?

The Gratitude Project: Weeks 28 & 29

"The past two weeks have kind of been jam packed with action, and things have not slowed down for me. I usually don't know whether I am coming or going. I honestly don't remember what I was most grateful for last week, since looking back now, last week was a blur. This week, I'm barely faring better! But, I know what I am most grateful for this week." I may have forgotten what last week held, but I haven't forgotten about this project! And, I haven't forgotten about this week's most poignant moments in my life. What are you most grateful for this week?
