It’s been a busy last couple of days and although I was still aware of choosing the items that I needed to add to my gratidude list, I haven’t been able to write. Today I spent the day decorating 300 votive candles for an event at church. I enjoyed myself, but wished I had my camera in hand so that I could share how cute they were. And I’m officially too tired to think!
Today I’m thankful I found this poem on the internet, I’m tired and so I’m cheating on my gratitude list by republishing I hope you find a thought or two you can incorporate into your list.
