Giving thanks in all things…
For turning 55…
though it did pain me a bit. (ouch.)
I got to celebrate with my husband at my favorite place...
so restful, beautiful, much needed for both of us.
Thank You, Father!
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 black journal…
