100+ Days of Gratefulness...

The other day I realized it had been more than 100 days of acknowledging something that made me happy, I was thankful for, or that I loved...100 days of seeing the goodgreat, no awesomeness in my life...100 days of taking pictures to capture moments of joy...100 days of looking for happiness in my little world & 100 days of being grateful for the life I've been given...


And you know what? I think I am a happier person because of it...It may sound simple and it may bring about simple results but at the end of the day I feel like it brought out something positive in me...



I made it my mission each day to really try and pinpoint my favourite moment- to look for it, create it, seek something out...


With the two hooligans in my life it was quite easy most days, because of all the laughter and joy they bring...But in those 100 days there were definitely some dark moments- Pip had her heart surgery, we found out she will need to have another, I was challenged with feelings of jealousy, etc...etc...But regardless the day, regardless the challenge there was always a shining moment...


There was always something I could share as the highlight of my day, always something I could thank Sweet Jesus for at the end of it & always something that made me smile...


I think as the days went on it was almost harder to just pick one thing to acknowledge...I found the more I searched for it, the more I found it... I think that's the best part about this whole thing & something I will take from it...The more I looked for it the more I realize how very much there is to be thankful for...


I updated the 100+ Days of Gratefulness and in putting it together- seeing my little family & the happiness, the memories, the life events we've had in just 100 days really does make one realize what's important & how precious it all is...I also love being able to look back & see the past 100 days so clearly- Often in these exhausting days of Mummy~Hood I lose track of time, days, months even- So having a clear picture of really what has happened the past 100 days laid out with a touch of gratefulness is awesome to have...



I will most definitely be continuing this habit & I've even started to form one with Noal- Before bed every night I ask him what his favourite part of the day is & then we say a little  "thanks" for it...At this point it's been mostly the slide, icecream, his friend "Inga" & Cookie Monster but I'm hoping it helps create a little boy with a grateful heart...



So moving forward with this you can find:


"What I’m thanking Sweet Jesus for one day at a time

And I will also start to do a weekly round-up on the blog as a separate post that you can find tagged or search for under Thanks Sweet Jesus or 100+ Days of Gratefulness...


I challenge you, friends, to try and pinpoint or highlight one thing a day you are thankful for...It doesn't have to be on a blog, no one even has to know you're doing it, but I promise getting in the habit of acknowledging thankfulness brings about a certain contentment within oneself...


A grateful spirit is something I strive for & being thankful for at least one thing a day for the past 100 days has helped bring that out...So friends & Sweet Jesus, here's to 100 more...
