it's never too late to be thankful (MM 550-568)

For a few months now, I have been doing my gratitude list on this blog every Monday.  It helped my
Mondays to pause and be thankful. But this last week I started jotting them down (almost) daily in a simple spiral notebook.  It is hard to be down for too long when at some point during the day I have to stop and think of the good things, the simple things.

  2. I have fingerprints everywhere. They reveal where my son has been during the day.
