Counting Gifts/ FAMILY

One Thousand Gifts #9

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.

    I know it’s not Ann’s Multitude Monday anymore – it’s Thursday – but there are just a whole lot of gratitude lists to get through!

    First – my fave from your list was – 185~uncles who take nieces for a day of fun (because I’m one of those uncles – and I have 4 nieces 🙂

    Thank you for this – made me smile.

    God Bless you and all of yours this day.
