I'm so glad I participated in Capturing our Blessings this month.  It was such a great exercise to actively look for the ways I am blessed each day.  And I found it even more profound on the days I was sick, tired, or teary.

On the 14th I took a picture of this quote from an attendee at my church:
"I'm thankful that no matter how difficult life can get, there is still always something to be thankful for. I guess you could say I'm thankful for thankfulness."
I found that to be very true this month. Not every day was perfect, but I am abundantly blessed despite my shortcomings.  So grateful for family, friends, and God's great love.
