Beginning in 2013, I started keeping a mason jar, an idea I discovered on Pinterest. Throughout the year, you add your happy thoughts to it; then on New Year’s Eve you read through them and remember all of the good times from the past twelve months.
In 2014, I also added a couple of things that weren’t happy but that I wanted to remember and reflect on as the year came to a close (the death of my first church friend, Shirley and the suicide/death of Robin Williams.)
I’ll share three others with you:
3/21: Flower show. It was a good day.
6/4/14: Went to the evening Ascension Mass. Saw A! She’s using a walker – since she broke her leg. It was great to see her.
8/4: Dominican Conference Center. Retreat w/ Bro. Mickey this weekend. I can’t wait! I need this.
