Weekly Gratitude Journal

It's Monday evening and I'm determined to get this gratitude post up! This past week I shared with the women of our church that choosing to daily give thanks to God is one of the best ways to shift your focus and change your attitude. I believe it can change a pessimist into an optimist! Making thankfulness a habit is life changing!
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)

-spending the day studying God's word 
-God's protection over my daughter when she was in a car accident
