Years ago I read Anne Voskamp's book "One Thousand Gifts", and I think I've gifted it 25+ times since. Within it she dares us to "live fully right where we are" through a celebration of grace and recognition of the power of gratitude. It's true that through the simple act of counting gifts, we can find great joy, clarity, understanding, forgiveness, love and hope. I strive to practice this daily through my journal and prayers, and in November I'm encouraged by the added voices and opportunities to join with others in thanksgiving...eucharisteo.
As we begin November, I'd like to extend a personal note of gratitude to you, The Bird & Bear Collective community. Thank you for reading, coming to events, following along and sharing us with others. Sharing is caring and we are so grateful for any help in expanding our reach! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
October was filled to the brim with unique experiences, conversation and invitations - and it looks like November is shaping up to do the same. You can always find what's coming up on our Website, Facebook and Instagram pages -- but for those who may have the new month's calendar nearby, or would like to see everything at a glance, you can find it all listed out below. We have so much to look forward to, and even more to be grateful for!
May your November be filled with gratitude and thanksgiving.
