Gratitober: Entry 19

19. I’m grateful God replaces hurt with peace. While reading one of my daily devotionals I learned something about myself. I don’t give myself permission to feel hurt. The older I get the more I reject my own feelings of grief and loss. Maybe it’s because I hate feeling/appearing helpless, or maybe it’s because I… Continue reading Gratitober: Entry 19

Gratitober: Entry 18

18. I’m grateful I don’t need surgery! As I mentioned in this video, I dislocated my elbow in May and since then I’ve been doing physiotherapy, using two Dynasplint braces, and doing daily stretches and exercises to regain as much range of motion as possible. Some weeks were rough. Really rough. Pain, inability to do… Continue reading Gratitober: Entry 18

Gratitober: Entry 17

17. I’m grateful for positivity. Yanno what phrase I really like? “Fake it till you make it.” I love that quote. I’ve been using that for years because when reality slaps you in the face like an inverted umbrella during a windstorm, there’s usually nothing you can do about it.

I’m writing this down because from today onward this statement is going to be true. As a… Continue reading Gratitober: Entry 16

I hadn’t heard of his story before, and didn’t know what to expect, but when the documentary-style film started playing I was quickly drawn in. The narrative tells of the events that… Continue reading Gratitober: Entry 15

Gratitober: Entry 14

14. I’m grateful for my friends. My heart is overflowing with gratitude for all the people God’s blessed my life with. Lost for words. Today, a friend said something to me that I never expected. They said, “That’s so Sarah. Able to bring light into even the darkest places.” I could never deserve this, and… Continue reading Gratitober: Entry 14

Gratitober: Entry 13

13. I’m grateful for change. I was listening to an online sermon today, about how to deal with life when we feel stuck. The lesson talked about the need for us to change our own direction, and not sit around in our situation, waiting and hoping for someone to come along and solve our problems… Continue reading Gratitober: Entry 13
