It is officially December 1st and the official start to the holiday season. Every year around this time, I begin to reflect on the last year and all of the great things that have happened.
2015 was a very good year for R and I. We got engaged after 12 years, married and started our journey to become a family. Yes there have been small bumps and detours along the way, but I really can’t remember them. I am choosing instead to focus on the wonderful gifts 2015 gave me.
I have heard a lot of discussion about Advent Calendars lately, and on the radio they had asked the listeners “If you could create an advent calendar out of anything other than chocolate what would it be”. Initially my mind went to wine…
Once my need for wine passed, I thought of a different spin on the Advent Calendar. Each day between December 1 and 25 I am going to express my gratitude for 1 thing I am grateful for each day. So every morning rather than opening a calendar date and consuming a chocolate, I am going to open my heart and express my gratitude for one thing and write it down.
On New Years Eve as the clock approaches midnight I will review everything I wrote and end the year with gratitude and bring in the New Year with positive thoughts.
Day1: I am grateful that I have found a forum to share, via my blog and that I have so many people that read it.
