One personal goal of mine is to stay close to gratitude in my heart. It’s easy to get caught up the busy-ness of day-to-day life, but the holidays (and a daily journal) are great helpers and reminders to focus on what we have and what we’re already so grateful for. Here’s what I’m grateful for this Thanksgiving.
We’re heading home and I may or may not be a little homesick.
