My dear friend Claire gave me a present last month....a Blessing Bag. This plain bag is a home for me to write down the moments of my life when I am feeling particularly blessed. The idea is that on New Years Day I will take my bag, empty the pieces of paper and remember all of those wonderful moments throughout the year.
In the past I have tried to keep a gratitude journal but if I missed a few days, I would get frustrated and then eventually give it up. I love the idea of a bag to fill and I keep paper both down and upstairs for whenever a blessed moment comes over me :) The bag is hanging in my closet and having it there is a good reminder at the end of the day to reflect upon the moments of my day that were special. This was such a simple gift but one that means so much, thanks Claire.
Welcome to Raising Z and Lil' C, a little blog all about raising my 6 year old son and my three year old baby girl. I am a former teacher and now a SAHM. I love to write about our journey towards a more simple life, our daily struggles, share cute stories and love to share good ideas when I find them. I hope you will join me on the ups and downs of this journey called motherhood.
