I've been trying to cultivate some gratefulness in my heart.
It's so easy to be cynical and critical.
I'm looking forward to reading Ann's book, 1000 Gifts... it's on my reading list this summer. Just the bits I've been inspired by on her blog have been very good for my soul.
I've got a little app on my iPod touch that has been fun to record the things I'm grateful for each night. I actually downloaded it a little over a month ago; right before April 27th. The day our state was hit with so many tornadoes.
I made this simple book so that I had a more permanent place to keep my grateful thoughts in.
It's really simply made out of paper kraft bags and patterned papers & embellishments from several NoelMignon kits (especially Mary Ellen & Jump and Jive).
I also threw in some papers from a little Jenni Bowlin Studios notebook I've had for a long time.
And masking tape. Of course, masking tape. :)
I hope to fill it up very quickly with gratefulness...
