Day 1, January 1

It is the start of a New Year.  This year I hope to write about gratitude for the small things in life, the everyday miracles and tender mercies which we all experience but sometimes fail to recognize.  When we find joy in the small things in life, we recognize the Lord's hand in our lives.

My life is full of these miracles and tender mercies, but too often I fail to acknowledge them and, to my shame, focus on the parts of life that aren't perfect.  I invite you to join me on this journey. 

So, for today, I am grateful for small things that become big things when seen through the lens of gratitude.


  1. What a great idea Mom. All of our lives are full of these small tender mercies that often go unnoticed.
