I am not behind in my thankfulness

In my defense, I forgot to write this post before I left for camp for a week.  So now, I truly do feel “behind.”

I am only behind on my blogging about my gratitude.  And this time, I can only blame myself.

The girls went to summer camp.  It’s a family friendly camp, and one of our good friends is a director there one week.  So you would think I would have lots and lots of time, right?

Except that Dale and I started playing a computer based game, and I’ve been so wrapped up in developing and leveling my character, that I’ve forgotten to do just about anything else.

So here is my gratitude journal for the past week.

Hugs,
Melinda
