Thankfulness and Forgetfulnes

"The things we hate about ourselves aren't more real than the things we like about ourselves." Ellen Goodman.
Church on Sunday had me thinking about God's forgiveness and FORGETFULNESS. He chooses to forget about our sins, our failings, the ways in which we fall short.
Psalm 103:12 "As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us."
Reading A Holy Experience's Ann Voskamp's amazing first chapter of her book, "One Thousand Gifts" has me thinking about thankfulness as a way out of self-condemnation.
Considering the year ahead has me excited about another year of opportunity with my fabulous family. I am thankful to have the privilege of spending most of my days with my children, to see them learning and growing into the amazing people they have been created to be...being thankful helps me to see past my own shortcomings and to focus on love.life.laughter.
