It’s been far too long since we’ve been to the beach.
I don’t think we’ve been since last summer when we were blessed to have a seaside getaway
with all of our daughters, sons-in-law, and grandchildren.
Finally, the Hubs and I were able to take a night and day away,
and our 3 year old granddaughter was able to come with us.
How can you not overflow with thanksgiving when He gives us all of this to enjoy?
How can you refuse to be grateful when a little miracle is following your footsteps?
How can you be blind to all the beauty,
or refuse to see God’s image staring back at you when you see your reflection?
How can you resist noticing, enjoying and thanking Him, for this crazy, wonderful life He has given us?
I’ve taken the Joy Dare.
I’m counting one thousand thanks in one year.
I hunt for thanksgiving using the prompts Ann gives us each month.

I continue to count my thanks
piling up gratitude day by day
in my little green journal…
