One New Thing

When I was growing up, my dad taught me to be grateful for one new thing a day.

He always said “thoughtful thankfulness” warded off a gloom and doom attitude. (No wonder Pollyanna was my favorite childhood movie!)

With all the earthly, dismal news I’ve been reporting in my personal life lately, I’ve decided to heed my father’s advice and add a new element to my blog. I’m posting a “Today, I’m grateful…” on my sidebar and will try to update it regularly.

I hope it serves to remind me how blessed I am and how very much God cares for His own.

In other news, I’m wishing my step-niece (Gary’s granddaughter) Brigitte a very happy birthday! She turns SEVEN today and will spend the day with her family, grandparents, and friends at McDonald’s party.

Happy birthday, B! Wish I could be there!
