Until my camera issues are resolved, consider in your mind’s eye: an old- time tea jar. Originally for pickles, then emptied, cleaned and used for Tea to be taken along for picnics, potluck and sometimes lunch in the field.
Now, daily consider your daily blessings, some more obvious than others. Make a note of the blessing considered, and drop it in the jar.
Watch the jar fill through the year. Comfort yourself with a quick read and go. At Thanksgiving 2013, or New Year’s Eve 2013, review your blessings.
This is an excellent family or individual project, and very uplifting for grey, rainy day contemplation before the flowers.
