44. thankfulness 360

it’s my new project.

you’ll see it up there on my pages.

i’m not advertising me, just suggesting it to you.

because…

it is helping me find joy and gratitude again.

i would say

snap out of it, self.

look at your blessings!

my husband said,

what do you have to be depressed about?

he’s right of course.

he usually is (at least about the stuff that matters….)

i blamed it on winter and no sun.

I blamed it on the busy-ness of holidays.

i blamed it on all the bad stuff that’s been happening

everywhere

around the world

there…here…far…near…

it was Christmas, for goodness sake.

the Joyful time of year.

Merry.

i wasn’t.

so i’m taking pictures

every day.

photographing

all that makes me smile,

noticing

the little blessings that make me happy.

and i’m finding it again.

each day with each small thing

i think

is this the one i want to photograph?

and now i’m walking around all day long

thinking about saying thank you to the Creator

because

i.have.so.much.

my heart is overflowing again.

because

of one little project.

you don’t even have to look at my photos.

take your own.

and give thanks.
