A Picture captured from this weekend


(Remember, my guys love to hunt. They had been cleaning their guns!)

Just a note to those who just started reading my journal,
I began the journey of joy several weeks back,
acknowledging those things that I am grateful for,
Not things I want, but things I'm given each and every day.

This list may read simple, but these could be taken or never given.
As the day unfolds I write them on paper and share with you on Mondays.
They are gifts that I need not take for granted or never acknowledge.



Each one is making my senses come to life.

We all need to look at the simple things in our lives as the best things.

And could this music be any more lovely against your list? No. I love the gratitude journal. Number 21 is my favorite.

Love the picture of your men!
