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)


-God's help and guidance 
-support and encouragement
-our family

-U.S.A.'s 241st birthday!  God bless America!
-our family coming over for BBQ and to watch the neighborhood fireworks

-getting to know our neighbors better as we watched the fireworks

-a text from our weary youngest daughter that our newest grand baby slept better
-finally getting something I've been procrastinating about done
-a need met
-a beautiful evening walk
-Psalm 92-"they shall still bear fruit in old age"

-an unexpected chance to see my youngest daughter and grand baby
-the way our grand baby stretches toward the sun because he loves the warmth on his face
-a really good prayer time at church tonight

-baking for the work crew that is helping with our new patio, (I love to bake!)

-many hands make light work-so thankful!
