Raigan challenged us to start keeping a daily journal of things we are grateful for. Well, we already do that, as a family. Before the boys go to bed, we open our Grateful Book and each of us writes down one thing we are thankful for from that day. And we leave a blank space next to Savannah's name, at the boys' insistence. This simultaneously warms and breaks my heart. But, that is another blog for another time.
I was thinking about Raigan's challenge and also about how I have not been blogging with much passion lately. I decided to challenge myself to 30 Days of Grateful Blogging. I will write, each day, about something I am grateful for.
I reorganized my books this past week. They had been in egg crates, stacked in my craft room. I turned the egg crates sideways and made shelves. All of my "To Be Read" volumes are scattered in the closet floor. I also have a basket full of books to give away, a stack of borrowed books to return and a stack of library books. Oh, and I have a box filled with Bible Study workbooks and that sort of thing as well. I am a bit of a bibliophile.
I somehow doubt this surprises anyone.
