This week, I found out that a mother from my congregation (with two children who are about the same age as my youngest two) made a New Year’s resolution to be more grateful – to intentionally find something to be thankful for every day.  To help her out with that, she started a blog – One Mom’s Year of Gratitude.  At the risk of embarassing her (the whole Mennonites and publicity thing, you know), I thought it was worth sharing a link here.  It’s such a good reminder to all of us – to be thankful and to encourage that in others.  And as a parent, I’m especially glad to know that parents besides me are capable of bad parenting decisions, as well.

And those children are just too cute.
