~ Roal Dahl


I was doing errands and appointments from 8am to 8:3pm yesterday, so I was too exhausted to journal, BUT...

I was inspired by The Magic I Witnessed Today. Yesterday was delightfully abundant. I was given free food at 3 places, received free service on a tire with a nail in it, and found a tails-up penny on the sidewalk.

Each time, I thought of that process, so I decided to get myself a little car/purse notebook. 

I'm sure there's value in writing it all out at the end of the night, as it puts the mind into a reflective gratitude state. But in the hustle and go, it started to feel like a scavenger hug. "Ooooh! Another!!!"
