Counting Gifts/ FAMILY

One Thousand Gifts #11

holy experience
One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are
Since reading the book “One Thousand Gifts,” there is so much meaning in why I count these gifts.  It truly does change ones outlook when practiced each and every day. It helps me learn what it looks like to be “content in all things.”  I am grateful.
P.S. Notice how many of my “gifts” have to do with food!  I really love food..:)
215~ permission to rest, to just be
216~ garden plan excitement
228~ chia seed discovery
229~ sun streaming in warm, hitting my leg
230~ a quiet day
231~ told by a wise man to put my pen down and just listen
232~ a lunch invite
233~ tickles and giggles
234~ a child brave enough to start her own fashion trend {she wrapped wrist in ribbon.  Like a cast:) Cute.}
