My 1000 Gifts

Prompted by a study of Ann Voskamp’s book, One Thousand Gifts, I have taken the dare to live fully, right where I am.  I have begun journaling my gifts daily, one by one, and have been so touched by the gifts in my life that I was simply too busy to notice before.  I wanted to share these gifts as they come to mind as a means of documenting them and encouraging others.  Will you join me in slowing down to notice the gifts that you have been blessed with in your own life?
