I have really appreciated this gratitude journal -- it was a very deep bonding experience for my son and me, and it has taught me a lot about the difference between being glad about "good" things versus really, truly experiencing joy with what is.
That is why I am sad to say that I am not going to be publishing on this blog for a while. Orlando and I have really fallen out of the rhythm of doing the journal together. For one, Papa is now often doing bedtime but even before then, Orlando was often more interested in drawing or reading with me before bed and would generally name two or three things and then tell me, "I'm not really into it right now, Mama." I am hoping that we can naturally and easily develop a new rhythm and will be posting here again soon.
I am still writing in the journal on my own, but this blog is OUR gratefulness journal, so I thought I better stop publishing just my own entries. You know, truth in advertising and all that.
If you want, you can subscribe to this feed so you'll receive news when we start posting again.
I want to thank you all for reading here and sharing in our gratitude.
