I have a confession. I love to pack up Halloween. I love the calm of this month in between the two big holidays. I love how my house feels with all the decorations in natural tones.
I have anticipated this month for the last year and it really is hard to believe that it has been a full year. November of last year (2011) was when our little Afton came in and out of our lives. It’s so hard to explain the range of emotions that come when I think of how our lives were flipped upside down one year ago. We have become better people through this experience in so many ways. Having a grateful heart through your trials is truly the only way to make it through.
So in honor of this month of giving thanks, and having a thankful or a grateful heart I will be posting a photo each day to Instagram with the hashtag #gratefulgram.
I love the idea of celebrating the little things that we sometimes over look but when we stop to think and thank about it, our outlook on life really changes.
My friend Amy of the Idea Room has put together this great list of prompts to help you all month, if you’d like to play along.
It’s okay if you want to do your own thing on some of the days, just remember to take a photo of something you are thankful for with the hashtag #GratefulGram.
I wish you all a month full of gratitude.
Have a great weekend.
