Introducing My Glad Game for 2012

Friday, December 30, 2011
I wanted to have a special blogging project for 2012 to focus on for the year.

I am not sure what this coming year will hold for us. We will be in a transitional state for several months at the beginning as we relocate and find a new nest, and all the adjustments that come with a new town and a new school. I am sure there will be good days and bad days and frustrating days, and days of happiness, and pretty ordinary days too.

I read in a magazine recently about some Australian women who started blogging every day about being grateful for something - just one thing - every day. Even if it was really, really hard to find something.

I love this idea so much that I thought I would make it my project for 2012. A personal challenge for me, to commit to doing it every day.

One photo. Every day. To celebrate the good in that day.

I've been thinking about the best way to do it - I didn't want it to take over my own blog. This blog. So it had to be somewhere separate, but still connected. So here it is. A Glad Game (remember Pollyanna)?
Come over and see it. But I won't be posting there until the evening of January 1. What do you think? Is it a good idea? I'd love it if anyone wanted to join me in doing this!

What an excellent idea! "In everything give thanks" and "this is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it"... I think your new blog will really help with that - it would for me! I'll think about doing it too, maybe. :)

I read that article about the Australian bloggers too. Good on you girl - I seriously considered it, but my blog every day project in 2010 showed me that I really do not have the time to do pics as well!

Happy New Year and happy adventures to your family this year Rachel xx

I would like to do it with you. I've changed to blogspot so getting link ups should be much easier. How do I join in with you?
