Weekly Gratitude Journal

It's March and the signs of spring being right around the corner are all around. The other day on my walk I noticed that in the pond near our house the frogs are back croaking out their spring song.  I love that sound. Are you noticing signs of spring where you live?
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)
