Joy Journal 2015

Hi Friends!
Over at Ben and Me, I found this great printable to journal my joy this year. I printed it out, 3 hole punched it and put in multi-colored book rings to make my journal complete, and placed it next to my laptop on my desk so that I can record something from each day that brought me joy. I guess that makes it Grati-Tuesday every day this year. :)
Come along on the journey with me and add a comment about something you are grateful for this year.

I am finding this one a challenge to keep current. As evidenced by a few large gaps. I need to go back and look at my calendars and photos to see what was happening these days. I'll try to get back on track and stay there. Thank you for your patience :)
