30 Days of Gratitude – Days 8, 9, and 10

Day 10
Chance mama meetups after a long, hard day are a nice surprise.

Day 9
I am grateful for the 30 Days of Gratitude. I want to look back on it next year and be inspired to do it again. I want to look back it in 5 years and think about how things change. I want to look back on it in 10 years and be amazed at how the kids have grown. I want to remember to be grateful.

Day 8

What kind of librarian would I be, if I wasn’t grateful for books? I get great comfort from stacks of books on my bedside table. Even if I don’t have much time some days, the sight of the stack is enough to remind me of one of my great loves-reading.

30 Days of Gratitude – Day 6



The last part of this year seems to be about making some choices-job choices, middle school choices, family choices. They have been hard things for me to think about. I agonized over some of them. At the time, it seemed torturous.
As the distance from these decisions has gotten greater, I have realized how privileged I am to even have all these choices. They are “good” problems to have. I know that I am lucky, privileged, fortunate.
