I love these pictures.
They make me happy.
I’m glad I took the time to snap a couple photos of a chubby baby and his big sister.
Four years ago, I started blogging what I called “1000 Moments of Joy”. (You can see them on my old blog here) It was a way for me to recognize and record the little moments in my life that brought me joy. I found that as I looked for and recorded those little moments, my life was filled with even more joy and I appreciated my role as a wife and mother so much more.
In this month of Thanksgiving, I have been trying to see and recognize more of the blessings my Heavenly Father has given me. I’ve noticed that when I take the time to consciously, acknowledge and recognize my blessings, I’m filled with such gratitude and joy for all I have and for the little tender mercies in my life. It’s so easy for me to get caught up in all the must dos during the day that I fail to acknowledge so many blessings and so many little moments that could bring me such joy, if I just took a second to appreciate them.
That is why I have decided to start recording my 1000 Moments of Joy again. I haven’t worked out all of the particulars yet, but once a week, probably on Sundays, I will be blogging moments from throughout the week that have brought me joy. I’m hoping it will help me be more aware of my many blessings and the joys in my life.
Check back again soon.
