Gratitude Journal Monday

Them leaves are gonna fall, and we're gonna rake.
Happy Monday, friends! We start the week together officially living in Autumn. I've got mantels to decorate, shelves to clutter with Halloween dust collectors, and fake webbing to stretch amongst the already-existing spider webs around my home (how convenient). But, before I get too out-of-control, I'll take the time to express my gratitude because a thankful heart is a happy soul and content spirit. Ahh, exactly who I want to be!

I hope you can join me. No declaration of gratitude is ever too small to be mentioned. Here's how I got started, click here.

306. I am grateful for the smell of baked chicken in the oven when I come into the house from the cool outside - so homey.

307. I am grateful for low-key weekends.

308. I am grateful for rainy and wet weekends because it gives you an excuse to stay home in fleece sweats and just hang-out together.

309. I am grateful my son still wants to play non-electronic games like the board game Pay Day (vintage, of course); it took us 3 days to get through an entire year and he beat me by $1,000!

310. I am grateful my mom holds a special place in God's heart and He will be watching over her during her operation later this week (everything will be OK, Mom).

I'm glad I am not the only one who likes to stay home in fleece every now and then. ;-)

Saying a prayer for your mom and her surgery.
