Weekly Gratitude List...

Monday was a full, busy day and then on top of it all I'm fighting a cold/flu bug. Last night I went to bed early and, therefore, am a day late posting my gratitude list. 

This past week I passed the 12,000 mark in my gratitude journal! This coming fall I will celebrate the tenth anniversary of when I started keeping a gratitude journal. What a life changing blessing this practice has been in my life.

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)

-the last of the spring cleaning chores finally done
-bluebells from my granddaughter in a vase on the kitchen counter
