Grace in small things

This was originally created by schmutzie. I have no idea who she is or anything about her but I think this is a great idea. I am going to try and do this for the next 281 days or at least for the majority of the next 281 days!

Schmutzie created Grace in Small Things as a daily reminder to take notice of the positive things we tend to overlook.

Grace in Small Things exists because we are choosing not to allow the noisiness of life to rob us of the time and energy to be mindful of ourselves and those we love and to recognize the grace that exists in small things.

Grace in Small Things is for YOU, because you deserve it.

Grace in Small Things is a challenge for every day, because there's no time like the present, tomorrow never comes, and some other cliche about seizing the day. Oh, right: carpe diem.


Grace in Small Things can be observed on your network weblog here, on your personal weblog elsewhere, in a notebook, or in smoke on the wind. The original challenge is to list five positive things every day, but we are a flexible lot, and since this is about finding joy, you should do it any which way that makes the most sense to you. There is a growing list of how-to articles to help get you started on the website.

1. Leftover Lemon Artichoke sauce with wheat pasta for lunch, yum, yum!
2. The time I was able to spend with my grandparents playing games and eating pizza
3. The bathroom is almost finished (I just found out that we are going to have some expert help on Saturday with tiling)
4. Hazelnut Decaf coffee
5. It's Wednesday and I get to go to church tonight

What a great idea! I'm glad you are doing it. I'm challenging myself to do it also. Probably not on my blog though. I have a gratitue journal that I try to write 3 things that I am grateful for that day every day. it usually turns out to be more like once a week....or even less than that.

I'm going to commit to try to do it every day. It is always refreshing to be reminded that you always have things to be grateful for even when you are having the worst of days...or months....or years.

love you much!, and thanks for re-igniting my gratitude attitude.(that was a pretty retarded rhyme. sorry about that.)
