If I recall correctly, these first few days are easy to find the gratitude in everyday. It’s like a new toy that we love to play with but come a few weeks of ownership we wonder why we committed to this. We wonder if we really knew what finding gratitude and grace in the midst of our everyday-ness would entail.
It’s going to happen. For me last year I mourned the death of friends of ours daughter. I got sick (I never get sick). I stressed over funding a mission trip to Moldova. Yet I recall how remembering to live thankful kept me grounded.
