An Advent calendar of sorts

So, my Christmases are pretty minimal; low-key decorations, very few gifts and more time and presence as opposed to presents.

I also don’t usually get an advent calendar, but this year I’ve decided to do an advent countdown in my own way.  Everyday of advent, I’m going to put up a blog post naming something I’m grateful for.  It might be a one line note, or a quote, or a full blog post, it depends on the day and what it is I’m thankful for.

I just want to use this season to think back over this year of change and remember the things I’m grateful for, so I can approach Christmas and the new year with a full and happy heart.

In addition to my Advent posts, I’ll do my usual blogging about running, and readers are welcome to ignore my Advent posts if they so desire.  I use tags so it’s easy enough to find my running posts.

I’m looking forward to this season, and excited about using this time to reflect and practice a thankful heart.

Happy advent!
