the way the light

Goldenrod 007

the way the light
begins to fall
in the kitchen
also tells me
it is August

My gratitude journal is overflowing, and I’ve almost reached 500 blessings on my way to One Thousand Gifts.  I buy notebooks made from recycled paper, and there are not that many blessings per page, as I am keeping the current notebook nearby and often noting those everyday-wonderful-things, without putting my glasses on to write.

I can see how blessings become poems and poems become blessings.

    1. Hi Marylin, Hope you enjoy the process. This sort of flowed naturally from Ann Voskamp’s book, One Thousand Gifts.

      Now that you mention “the list technique” I remember lessons too.

      Thank you
