Catching up is a necessity of life these days – Catching up on house work;  Catching up on sleep (is that even possible?); Catching up on connecting with each other.

Life zooms and suddenly . . . well suddenly there is nothing but catching up.IMG_2069_8407sm

I’ve been able to continue with my gratitude journal through the zooming of the past weeks.  Now it is time to share it here – believe it or not I haven’t updated on Gratitude since October 21, – just over two months.  Not good!

So it is time to share and share big.  But there are too many to share all of them – just a snippet to give you a glimpse at the beauty and grace of God in even the zooming parts of life.
