Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not;
remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.


Last month I made a little handmade booklet, 3 x 3.5 inches, for journalling my gratitudes.

This month I began doing quick sketches of moments or things I am happy about and want to take time to remember.

These are a few gratitudes from this past week.

  1. I agree being appreciative of all we have is important and encourages more appreciation of life. Your journal is a good idea and sweet art included just makes it all the more meaningful for you.

  2. What a great idea keeping a journal like that.

  3. Your sketches are beautiful and truly captured the feeling of the subjects. I like the idea of keeping a gratitudes journal, and the small size would make it manageable. Blessings!

  4. Thanks for sharing your lovely gratitudes!!!

    Smiles, Saskia :)

  10. Wonderful pieces of nature. I love hummingbirds too and seeing one around my plants almost makes me giddy...lol.

  11. This is really LOVELY, Juana! I'm a big believer in the power of gratitude journalling. And I especially love how you've chosen a small scale for our project... Small can be mighty. ;o) Your mini books gives some great inspiration--it's like haiku! Happy Day ((HUGS))
