So today is the end of August. And the end of my commitment to write a blog post everyday for something I am thankful for throughout this month. (In 2015 I had decided to just write one post per month). I decided today to take a look back at the month and revisit some of the day to day joys that August has seen, and I have to say, it is really lovely to look back! Amidst all sorts of things going on in my life, these are some of the beautiul moments each day has brought. Moments of beauty, inspiration, stillness, joy, love, laughter, fun, and gifts from my creator God. And mostly, they are just the regular, the ordinary and the every day. And there it is: Life. Ordinary, beautiful, everyday gifts.
