I feel obligated to write.
These things happen. It's happened before. It will happen again.
I just don't feel like writing.
And so I don't.
You can't force these things.
But I will tell you that I made a jar for 2014 (and probably years to come, if this catches on). 2013 was a stupid year. I even wrote this letter to 2013 and stuck it on facebook:
I hate you.
It's time to party.
To celebrate you ending.
I might even make a cheeseball.
Because you're over.
People laughed, but I was dead serious (although I'll admit to a smidgen of humor driven behind writing that).
In hopes of keeping an optimistic spirit through 2014, I created a jar. It's a cute jar. I even put ribbon on it. Once we move, I'll probably try to make it cuter. But for now it's mostly just functional. I store slips of paper in the lid and a pen inside. Every day (or almost every day) I write down something God did for me that day and happy moments. I've written down things from my Trooper learning to walk to timely words from a church leader. It's great and I like it:)
So I guess I dedicate this Thankful Thursday to my jar...It needs a name. I'll get around to that.
What are you thankful for today?
