November

November is here - hooray!

I am very excited about this month for two reasons:

November is National Adoption Awareness month. I plan to share some adoption stories and stats, and all my favorite adoption-related things..... Adoption has changed our life and the lives of our families, and I consider it a privilege to help raise awareness about the gift of adoption.

I am also declaring November my National Personal Gratitude month - 30 days of gratitude. I'm striving to be intentional about this area of my life. I have a few books I'm reading about gratitude. It's incredible all that I am learning - gratitude can actually have an impact on your health! Lots more to come about that this month.

I hope you will journey with me through this month....share your stories, thoughts or questions about adoption and also share the things you are choosing to be grateful for. If you have a blog, would you consider joining me in 30 days of gratitude?

Day 1: Today I am thankful for a husband who took my daughter on a daddy/daughter breakfast date this morning. He said it was rather pointless because she barely ate anything, doesn't hold a conversation real well and spent the entire breakfast playing with the sugar packets. But he started something that I know he will continue and that I know will impact my daughter greatly in the years to come. And for that I am so grateful.
