Homemade Instant Oatmeal

 


JUMP TO RECIPE

I don’t know about you, but I can be grumpy all day if my morning starts off wrong. When my kids are demanding cookies (yes, cookies) the second their feet hit the floor, and the dishes from last night are still on the counter, sometimes I just want to surrender. At 7:00am.

Gratitude Journals

I shared a few years ago that I sometimes struggle with gratefulness. I sometimes choose to look at what I don’t have or can’t do, rather than at the hundred other blessings that are right in front of me.
