So here we go- all 30 of my moments of gratitude this month.
|4: Color. I think a picture of the sky has been my 'color' shot almost every year for this challenge, but I can't help myself.|
|12: Wisdom. This is the shelf in my personal library that I reference the most frequently.|
|15: Clothing. So grateful they dress themselves now!|
|18: Food. Chickens who provide us with so much, eating pumpkin seeds.|
|22: Time. So grateful my girl is learning to tell time at school!|
|25: Comfort. My little thumb-sucker with is precious "Fresh Blanket."|
|28: Work. I am so grateful for kids who willingly do chores!|
|29: Creativity. Aaaaarrrr-drey the Pirate in her box pirate ship.|
|30: Self-Love. It's cliche, but I rarely shop for myself, and it feels a little like love when I do get out... alone... for just me.|
This month was chaotic at best, and just like in the regular day-to-day that isn't leading up to a holiday, I found it hard to stop and find something I was grateful for to focus on for every. single. prompt. Also there were some days when it seemed like nothing was photogenic enough to make the cut... so I skipped a day here and there and doubled up on other days.
However, I still enjoyed this "challenge," and found myself able to appreciate things that might not have gotten a second glance- like the chalk art in the driveway- or things that are so appreciated and used that they're taken for granted- like my coffee maker.
Also, it's always fun to look back at a month and have a photo for every day that flew by, and I think that's what I like best about this project. The saving of the days that speed by faster than usual when we enter into these holidays.
So long November, thanks for leaving me with a little somethin' to remember you by.
