You can see the beginnings of this project here and here. When I began the Gratitude Journal, I made a list of words that represented things for which I am truly grateful. While Sarah and Caleb were here, I looked for opportunities to capture photos of them with words I had chosen. Now that they’ve gone back home, it’s back to creating photo opportunities for some of the rest of the list. It hasn't been nearly as easy to keep up with this since they've gone home. I only have four more pages to go, but there are too many for one post, so I'll start with these for today, and finish it up in a day or two.
11.14 OK, so I really don't like flying, but without air travel I would rarely see either of my children. So, yes, I am grateful for air travel!
11.15 The first full day since Sarah and Caleb left. It's a good thing the sun is shining! I am always grateful for sunshine in Rochester.
11.16 Papercrafting has brought me a lot of joy---the ability to creat hand-made gifts, make new friends through blogging, and new opportunities for sharing my passion. (These are the gift tags I made for the family gift exchange this year.)
11.17 Ten years ago I wouldn't have believed the amount of traveling we've done since we retired. I love seeing new places, visiting friends and family, and learning so much about this country. (This is the next trip planned out. We're driving Tracy's mother's van to Florida for her in early January, stopping to see friends in the Cheasapeake Bay, Charlotte, and Stuart, FL before we head to Fort Meyers for a few days.)
11.18 We've belonged to Third Presbyterian for over 30 years. Here we've found friends, support, and opportunities for service.
11.19 I missed Sarah and Caleb the minute I left them at the airport. Thank goodness for Face Time and the ability to SEE them as well as talk to them.
11.20 This man is the best thing that ever happened to me. Kind, patient, loving, supportive, forgiving--the list goes on and on. Lucky me!
