New Outlook: Gratitude!

The past 8 months have been some of the most difficult I can ever recall having. To tell you all that's happened would take an entire book of blog posts. Many of you know some of my struggles. None of you know all of it. Suffice it to say, between sick pets, a sick car, & finances in the tank, it's been beyond rough. I cannot say I'm through the dark times that descended upon me, nay engulfed me... but I have decided to make a conscious effort to pull myself out of the mire & show some gratitude for the blessings I do have!

"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose."
~ Romans 8:28

By sharing my blessings with you, I will be reminding myself. A blessing a day... until I run out. A month ago, that statement would have made for a very short blog. Today, however, I believe this could go on & on. Today, I begin:
The Gratitude Project
... Stay tuned...


  1. :) interesting that everything i came across today- fb posts, devotional, scripture and friends all reminded me to be thankful for all the blessings i have. When i woke up that wasn't what i had in mind at all- been really kind of down... so thankful that God is spreading His joy through the end of the day. Love you friend, you are not alone... Thank you, will be checking your blog :)

  2. Thinking about what we are thankful for makes everything clearer doesn't it?

  3. I love this, you are truly blessed, my Sister. You are so loved.
    Glad to see you overcoming. Fantastic project, can't wait to read and feel a part of it everyday.
    I'm with you - I love you!
