1000 Gifts

Part of one of my 101 in 1001 goals it to read One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp, which I won from Adorakble! It has been over a year on my shelf and long over due to be read, so I've made it my goal for the month of February, to read it. I am on chapter 4 and well on my way to finishing my February goal. 

One of things I have been challenged with, is to be thankful for the gifts in my life, whether big or small. I believe a heart of gratitude allows us to see the world in a completely different light. This book is challenging me to think differently and enjoy the small things in life. I really want to compile 1000 things I am thankful for, but I don't if that is realistic, especially since I am trying to complete my 101 in 1001 journey. 

Can you write a 1000 things you are thankful for?

I have a small journal that I carry w/ me everywhere and jot things I'm thankful for, ways I see God's favor and grace in my life. I do it throughout the day...or when i remember:) haven't reached 1000 yet, but I think the point is to become aware that there are HUNDREDS of things to be thankful even on the crappiest of days. You can do it :)
