I sit before my keyboard, tears in my eyes, as I realize that thanks giving has changed me,
changed my life.
Not Thanksgiving the day, but thanks giving the life style.
I started listing my thanks in my little green journal on September 27th, 2009.
“I’m lavished with love, grace and favor by Jesus” was the first thing I gave thanks for.
Two years, two months, and almost 1500 thanks later I realize I’m happier, more content,
more mindful of how blessed I am.
Thanks Ann for starting me on this journey of thanks living.
I continue to count my thanks
piling up gratitude day by day
in my little green journal.
