Oh my, I have loved the gratitude notes that Michelle popped into my inbox each morning this week. As a rule, I don’t check email before I begin my morning quiet time, but this week, I logged on briefly to snag a screenshot of her prompt. I logged a few comments with my morning journaling, then let the prompt sit … marinate even … and I was surprised – and delighted – with what all of that time turned up. My evening posts weren’t what my morning time envisioned. or some days even could’ve imagined. Is that gratitude at work? or time? I’d like to think it’s both.
Thinking about … how thinking about gratitude from different perspectives has broadened my viewpoint. oh my, what if I approached grace, light and hope this way, too?!
Grateful for … those daily gratitude notes, the faith-growing conversation in my Friday morning small group (also the freshly baked apple pumpkin muffins that one of our group brought today), the library, a morning walk with Lauren (not “dark early”), and a quiet afternoon at home.
Inspired by … that spiced honey apple syrup to experiment with new cocktails!
Fun … Alice Hoffman is Sunday afternoon. I am totally in love with The World That We Knew, which I will finish before the event. If you’ve read the book, is there a question you’d like me to ask? (they love questions!)
Here’s to a weekend celebrating gratitude and surprises!
