In Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day, spiritual practice

:::January 1, 2018:::

Throughout the year we have a “gratitude jar” that we write down what we are grateful for. The things that make it into the jar are usually the simplest acts, yet they make a huge impact on our lives. Every January 1st, we sit down and open the jar and reflect on the last year. –

For many 2017 was a rough year. For me, it wasn’t the easiest. But opening this jar tonight truly reminded me of the many, many forgotten and seemingly “small” moments that filled our year. –

My biggest wish for 2018 is to fill our jar with exactly what we found in 2017. The small moments are THE moments. Say thank you for each. –

Happy 2018 everyone! What gratitude are you calling forth in 2018?
