Last year I began keeping a jar full of gratitude. Each day I'd place a note about something I was grateful for.
Things got a bit rough and the year ended with great sadness and the death of my hero, my father. (photo)
But looking back on the gratitude notes today, I see that there were so many things to be grateful for. Many of you are mentioned in my notes, as well as the people and animals I helped with my volunteer work.
I'm keeping a jar again this year (although it's in a digital folder on my computer this time) . No matter how hard life gets, there is much beauty in the world and so much to be grateful for!
