Notepad open. Well on my way to listing 1000 moments of gratitude. It’s a project in thanksgiving. LIVING in thanksgiving, LEARNING in thanksgiving. Not for things really, but for moments. My pen, my paper…made holy, in this giving thanks. Every moment offered up. It’s bringing me joy, and the gratitude is filling me up. Excerpts from the list, simple things….the dirt under blue eyed girl’s fingernails, says to me that she is still a little girl, and lion boy’s lips soft and sweet on mine this morning, man child’s sweaty hair after soccer, washing dishes by hand…just to feel the soapy goodness on my hands, like a mini calgon moment. Just a few moments that I am so grateful for. Not the things…the moments. I am naming the moments, and in that giving them life. Joy is in thanksgiving.
