A year ago on New Year’s Day I spent almost the whole day indulging myself at my parents’ cabin. I was blessed to be able to take a bubble bath and read a book my mom loaned me. before, during and after the bath. Blissfully, I soaked away the stressful hours that had been building up to Christmas the week before and then my daughter’s wedding two days before. The book was by Al Fox, featured in the video above. It was a great way to start the New Year. Ever since then I’ve been inspired by Al. I love seeing what she is up to after reading her story. Here’s a great video she did about 7 different journals you can keep. Hopefully it will inspire you to become a faithful journal writer. I’ve been a consistent journal writer for many years now and it’s one of the best ways I know to feel better about life and connect to God. Just for fun, here are two of Al’s recent videos below. First, her video of moving back to New York, and then her Christmas video. She moved back to her hometown after being away from her family for 10 years. The reaction on her mom’s face when Al surprised her on her mom’s doorstep is so priceless. I’m so excited for them to be reunited!
