Over the month of November the girls and I are going to add a little something to our gratitude jar daily— something we are thankful for small or large—to help us regain focus on what is important as we enter the the advent season.
This time of year is always hard on me as I see the “I wants” start to dominate. Part of it is that I can’t afford to give my kids everything they want. Secondly, because people around me have become so materialistic. I find humility somewhat lacking from humanity lately, myself included, and it is a bummer.
Hopefully a daily reminder of what I do have and the people who grace my life will be a great jumpstart to the new liturgical year.
