almost 30...

We are coming to an end of my little blogging project. Tomorrow will be the final installment. I could have done better in so many ways but I did my best and that, my friends, is all one can do. I am slowly learning that by being grateful for the little things in life, it makes the path all the clearer to recognize the miracle of the big things.  It makes daily living that much more fulfilling, watching it all unfold right before my eyes. His plan is pretty darn amazing sometimes. I gotta say.

Today I am grateful for:
