This Lenten Journal of finding three things to be thankful for each day is becoming more difficult, when the weeks are filled with routine, seemingly mundane activities. Especially since my goal is to not repeat the same item more than once. It’s made me become more aware of what is around me. At least we will soon have a vacation to break it up!
