Remember back to June? https://sundayschildfullofgrace.wordpress.com/2012/06/01/grateful-for-garbage-and-grace/ I decided that would be the beginning of summer to me. Here we are 78 days later. Summer is my least favorite of the seasons. However, this year I decided to keep track of things I am grateful for. Actually, I am surprised that my list has grown and grown and grown into 411 things to be grateful for. When I began, I wanted to continue to keep track of at least three things a day. It just sort of took on a life of its own. I love, adore, am fascinated, excited, happy and joyful that I have so much to be thankful and grateful for.
Today, I am grateful for things that make me happy: 411. paper calendars 412. my sweet dog 413. swimming 414. Mt.
