Ten thousand blessings!


I've been keeping my gratitude journal since the fall of 2009.  
This past week I passed ten thousand as I count my blessings!
So here I am posting my ten thousandth blessing and beyond, a day later than my normal Monday gratitude posts because I seem to not have enough hours in the day lately!

****************
Since 2009 I've been counting my blessings thanks to the prompting of Ann Voskamp.
 I continue to count my thanks
piling up gratitude day by day
in my journal.
(and capturing some of my blessings via my camera or iPhone)
