Our Captured Life Tidbits

Captured-Life-Tidbits-2

   So thankful for these moments — these tidbits that make up life.

Capturing the moments is a gift.

Counting these gifts keeps me present,

 keeps me thankful,

& reminds me to live NEW!

 

It has been too long since I posted about all the gifts that life brings.  The last time was almost a year ago and I find myself sad that I have not been recording all the good lil’ bits of life that has happened this year.

Honestly, it has been a long, rough year.  One of the toughest yet.  BUT…God.  God has been very near and faithful & has brought and continues to bring our family through so much.  I will be sharing some of that journey in the coming year, but in the meantime, how about some gift counting with me?

It is almost 2015 and I am excited to start counting the gifts again. I stopped at #1075 and I’m ready to keep on counting. I have a fun plan how to do just that and will share it with you very soon!  In the meantime, here are a few amazing gifts I have found by scrolling through my Instagram feed from the months of October & November.
