Weekly Gratitude Journal...

It's Memorial Day and so I begin my weekly gratitude post by giving thanks to God for all who have laid down their lives in service for our country.
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)

Thank You, God for...
