Monday Funday: Gratitude Development Project

 In my search for purpose, because quite frankly I often do not feel like I have a purpose or I feel pretty glazed over in my vision of purpose, I decided to do this gratitude. And as I write the word 'gratitude' I am realizing I have spelled it wrong on my letter to someone. -pause to go change my text in my carefully documented flower photo-

Anywho-- Yesterday was one. of those. days. You know the ones where you question what is happening and where you are in your life.  Dancing is no longer the center of what I am doing, and that is a good and bad thing. It's where I am at right now. A very wise lady told me at the beginning of the summer to take it in strides, every season is different, you don't have to freak out. That's so much easier said than done.  There are things potentially happening in our lives that are not my ideas, and after telling my husband so last night, he replied to me today about the issue. This project that is potentially lies in our pathway is so much bigger than us. It's okay.  We are being developed with the characteristics to be able to handle it.  (I am speaking of our Ranch thing. A community for foster kids in short)

I decided with yesterday behind me, today would be a good day to stick my first thank you letter in the mail.  I did it, and it is so exciting to tell people what an impact they have made.  People in our lives do not hear it enough, and that is unfortunate. In my letter, there was extra paper and an envelope with a brand spanking new stamp on it to be passed forward. I am excited to hear the stories, or maybe it will just be me imagining the possibilities.

I would love for you to join me on this gratitude development project! 
Let me know how it goes for you!
