I know these little gratitude entries may seem so ambigous to you. Some of them have stories behind them (#17, #19, #20....) One of my friends is moving to CA to teach in a Christian school. I'm going to miss her....she gave me one of her cleaning jobs and I worked with her on Friday. We had such a great time together. Sweet memories.

Each Monday, I'll be listing from my "gratitude journal". I'll have to post a pic of the actual journal - too cute! I really need to be more grateful and look at the little blessings in each day.
