One full week of November is in the books and the weather here has definitely started to turn cold. While I’m doing my best to avoid the Christmas decorations and music, there has been a little planning that has taken place.
With little man’s birth likely to happen either during Christmas week or right after, I’m determined to get all my Christmas planning and shopping done before Thanksgiving so that way I can enjoy December with my family before things get super busy.
Now with all that being said this week I have continued to savor the fall season by eating lots of pumpkin bread, playing outside in the leaves with my kids and writing in my gratitude journal as I’ve been reading through Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy.
Day 1: GRATEFUL. period. Spending the next 30 days choosing joy #CreativeBlessingsEveryday
Day 4: My happy place… early morning writing, coffee and pumpkin bread #CreativeBlessingsEveryday
Apparently I’m not the only one tired today!
Day 6: Counter full of groceries. I will say as this pregnancy is coming to a close, we are eating a few more processed things than I care to admit. Also don’t even judge the giant bag of Sour Patch Kids, I’m not proud I’m just ridiculously pregnant and I only have a few more weeks were it’s acceptable to gain weight and I’m taking full advantage of that even if it means eating pure surgar! 🙂
And on Facebook I’ve been sharing some thought provoking quotes from Nancy Leigh DeMoss as I’ve been reading through her book.
Such good stuff. One of the biggest take aways from my reading this week is that gratitude is a choice and that there is a big difference in being able to say thank you and having a thankful heart.
Nancy Leigh DeMoss is so full of wisdom and grace. I have really enjoyed soaking up her God-breathed words through this book and this 30 day challenge.
