Grace in Small Things

I'm not overcoming this bloggy laziness, and it's frustrating me. And, oh boy, do I have things to post. So, I decided to give myself a challege and join Schmutzie's Grace in Small Things. I've been seeing it everywhere... and I finally decided to figure out exactly what it was about.

So what is Grace in Small Things? Schumtzie has written that it is "a daily reminder to take notice of the positive things we tend to overlook." And why would we do this? Well , "because we are choosing not to allow the noisiness of life to rob us of the time and energy to be mindful of ourselves and those we love and to recognize the grace that exists in small things." Schmutzie started doing this last year in November and many other have joined her. Me and my laziness... well... we're starting now. And Schmutzie... she says that just fine. So starting tomorrow expect to start seeing this little blue button...

and a list of 5 things that have graced my life (either that day, or at some other point in my life). I'm taking that to mean little things that bring me a little happy feeling just by thinking of them.

One thing about putting myself into this challenge though... I am going to try to do the whole daily 365 days in a row thing... but I'm not going to stress out over it. That... well... that would not make me happy. I am going to try my darnedest... but if I suddenly find that's it's time for bed, and I'm wiped out from a long day... well, I will find grace in going to bed, and I will try again the next day. So my promise... I will do 365 posts... they just might not be 365 days in a row. Sound OK?

Check in tomorrow for my first 5!
