Borrowed, Found, Inherited

It suddenly dawned on me that, if I want to record a thousand blessings in a year, I should number them consecutively, which would make today’s 58, 59. and 60.

Here goes:

58. a grace borrowed–a green pen to grade stems quizzes. Grading kept me busy, NOT bored.

59. a grace found–this poem/song–Hymn to God the Father by John Donne, and

60. a grace inherited–my height. I am six feet tall. I was 5’11” when I was eleven, and I thought, for a long time, that my height was a curse. I can finally say that, at almost 57, I am at peace with it.

    Wow, that’s quite an undertaking to record a thousand blessings in a year, but definitely a worthy one. We probably all would have more thankful spirits if we took the time to do that. Hope you and your family are doing well.

    I’ve been recording my Joys in my personal journal, and had to chuckle about someone else forgetting that numbering them consecutively would help keep track of our progress towards 1000. I suppose recognizing and experiencing those joys is more important than numbering them, but still…. 🙂
