A Different Take on a Blessings List

For several years, I kept a blessings list where I wrote down each day something I was grateful for.

I still wish I had done it every day.

Today (just past the first day of the new year), I saw a video on the 365Grateful campaign from the woman who started it all.

She took a photo each day of something she was grateful for and wrote down why she was grateful for it.

Thankfully I already took photographs yesterday, so I can start with those.

I am thankful for my nieces–who love me with open arms and hearts, who spend time with me willingly, who help me in my poetry projects, who look at my photography/book projects, and who want me to cheer them on in their lives, too.
