365 Grateful

Since becoming a mother and deciding to start my own business from home, I've found that I have very little free time.  Go figure, huh?  I've been working really hard to find that perfect balance of mother & wife, while keeping a good home, getting a business off the ground, still having "me" time, and staying balanced and grounded.  There are days when I knock it out of the park and days where I totally fail at all of the above.  And I'm not gonna lie, I totally wouldn't be able to even come close to meeting those goals if it weren't for other people, random acts of kindness and little pieces of happiness found in unexpected places.  I found that at least once a day I said to myself or someone else, "I am SO grateful for this."  And while the gratitude never leaves my heart, I thought it would be so awesome to document one each day as a reminder of all the good things in my life.  I had been thinking about this for a while, and then I randomly read about a project called "365 grateful."  If you have a few minutes to watch this video, it will tug on your heart strings a bit and maybe inspire you to document your gratefulness as well. With that said, starting today my journey to 365 days of gratitude begins.  Every day for one year, I will blog about one thing that I am grateful for.  Seeing as how this is a photography blog I'm going to try my damnest to incorporate an image with each post, but I'm not going to put any pressure on it or take away from what it means to me.   

And for anyone who keeps up with my facebook page, you'll know our house has been hit with a plague so due to the fact that we've all been bed ridden I don't have a photo of my own to go with my first entry, but I just wanted to get this party started!
