purposeful gratitude | kellie trenkle personal

i finally did something crafty. 
we trenkletoes are committed
to counting our blessings this year. 
the idea is to jot down some 
thankfulness, a new memory, 
a praise or a prayer. 
and read thru them 
at the end of the year. 
the kids have already written 
their first deposits. 

i felt a little creativity welling up 
for this personal project 
and labeled my "blessings jar" 
with some pretty words 
spoken from my heart.  

sometimes i forget to 
simply say 
thank you 
to the One 
who gives me breath 
daily redeems my heart! 
i want to have more 
purposeful gratitude. 
i have such a rich life, really.
