A Gorgii Porgii Day...🌟🌟🌟🌟

Leilani's hands shook as she reread each strip of notebook paper that she pulled from the "Blessings Jar" that she kept on her kitchen counter.

The first strip of paper read:

*$140,000 worth of student loans were just wiped away by the Biden Administration.

The second read:

*I just became first on Mercy Hospital's kidney transplant list.

And today, at 50, Leilani Pierce could add a positive pregnancy test to her "Blessings Jar". She could not believe that she would be becoming a mother after 21 years of trying!

The gist of the "Blessings Jar" is that on New Year's Day, each maternal grandchild receives an empty jelly jar from their grandma Herbert with their name on it to place their written blessings in. Throughout the year, each grandchild is supposed to write down their individual blessings on a slip of notebook paper, then place each blessing into their "Blessings Jar" until the end of the year. On December 27th, each grandchild is supposed to pull out each of their written blessings from their jar, then read them all at once to reflect on how truly blessed they've been.

Leilani had initially thought that "Blessings Jars" were mad corny but today, through the use of her "Blessings Jar", Leilani was able to tangibly see how many major blessings that the Lord had brought to her doorstep that year and boy did it feel good. She simply couldn't believe what a gorgii porgii day she was having.

    If we wrote them all down the jar would overflow. But we would have to pay very close attention, because every single day is a blessing...with extra ones which we tend to miss, while racing through our days. I should start that trend. Great idea. Hi T.

    Love this story and love this idea. I so want to create my own blessing jar for my family! I think with all the awful stuff going on in the world today, we need more things to bring some light. Great job :)

    Amen. I love this Tiffany! It reminds me to count my blessings each and every day because his promises always come true. I was so happy for Leilani’s positive pregnancy test. Having a baby is a blessing we should never take for granted. Thank you for sharing this. πŸ’•πŸ’•
