21 graces: An introduction.

January 04, 2013

Back in 2009, I decided to compile a list of the the daily, small moments of grace I noticed in my everyday routine. I did this for a year, and in that year, I learned about myself and what I deserved, I let things go that I didn't need crowding my life, I met a boy, I became engaged to that boy and then I started planning a wedding.

By January of 2010, I had collected a list of 1,825 graces. And there were so many more that went undocumented.

Writing these words out was a daily reminder to me of the grace I was shown in my life day in and day out. After seeing the turn my life took in a year, I found that when I stopped to reflect on the blessings in my life, and truly valued and recognized each one, I received greater blessings than I could have ever imagined. I don't think for one second it's a coincidence.

Some were small, some were big, and some were even life-changing.

So, in 2013, I want to start reflecting on these daily graces once again. Come next Friday, I will start listing these blessings twenty-one at a time. I want you to join me.

Here's how it works:
  1. Be in each day and think of three blessings. 
  2. By the end of the week, you will have twenty-one graces to share. 
  3. Come here each Friday morning and link up your list.

They can be small - the first cup of coffee in the morning, fresh flowers, a cuddly dog - or big - a new-found friendship, finally finding peace, being healed.

Just be in each day and they will come. I hope to see you next Friday.

  1. This is an awesome idea. It's so easy to get caught up in what we want, but don't have and take the good things for granted. I'm gonna try and do this :)

  2. I'm in! Although, I've never "linked up" before...I hope I do it right!

  3. Love this idea! Looking forward to linking up.
