What a wonderful idea...to build a journal like that. It has made me feel happy reading your reasons to be cheerful so it must be great for you! :) x
I enjoy this journal idea. I saw it on her site, myself, but I have many "partial" journals. I have a problem staying with it for more than a month or so.A young friend of mine introduced me to a blog idea, where you post 10 or 20 reasons your are thankful. My greatest problem is that I start doubling up reasons on the same number, as I don't stop! Which is a nice problem to have. I enjoy your blog. Just found it the other night. Thanks for sharing today. ShelleyJo
Welcome, ShelleyJo, I just visited your blog and look forward to visiting again to get to know you better! I am sorry I missed it if you mentioned it, but in what part of the world do you live?Gracie <3

Your idea is contagious, Kate!!!I am excited to see the positive responses we are getting!Cheers to you and yours!Gracie <3
You have inspired me to get another journal going! I love your sweet backhand cursive writing. I'm afraid I have not been too cheerful this past week, having been so sick and all. But I am so very cheerful at the prospect of feeling much better for next week! And if I had to pick one cheerful thing, it would be having finished my Jubilee blanket last week!!!Hugs to you my Northwest friend.Kris
Oh, I hope you enjoy your new journal, Kris!Viewing your beautiful bobble blanket cheers me too!Gracie <3
I think those a wonderful things to be thankful for. I am thankful it is raining a monsoon out today so I can be cozy inside and knit away. I would be thankful for that Stylecraft yarn, too!Hugs,Meredith
I'm glad you got to enjoy some cozy knitting time, Meredith, and I admired the yarn you bought this weekend :)Gracie <3
Hello Grace I have many reasons at the moment to be cheerful here are some. I spent Wednesday until today with my eldest son and his family. Today we all met up with my youngest son and family and enjoyed a fun time including an indoor picnic to celebrate my eldest grandson's 7th birthday. Also glad that all was well on our return home and that DH has thoroughly spoiled me this evening.Loved reading your list of reasons thankyou for sharing. Anne x

A fun way of doing this challenge.
It is fun, Barbara!I am thoroughly enjoying getting to know you through your blog! I read through some of your life story last night and look forward to reading it all!Should you ever be curious I have posted a page on the right column of my blog entitled *Louis*.I typed it after my husband of 38 years died in 2009. Much of what I typed was read at a time of celebration of his life that was held with some family members and friends months after he died. I tried to describe his relationship with God...which reflects my relationship with God as well. God's love, His presence in life is so amazing!!! :)I am so glad you decided to blog and I feel blessed to view and read it.Joy to you and yours,Gracie
