Okay, I know that sounds crazy, but it's true...when I started reading A Holy Experience, it really challenged me. One of the areas it challenged me in is gratitude. I decided to start keeping a gratitude journal - my own book of 1,000 gifts. I just started it last month, and I'm already amazed at how much that little book is changing me.
When you take time to look for things to be grateful for, you realize just how how much you have. I'm so amazingly, abundantly blessed. There are so many little things that I take for granted every day. Writing it all down makes me stop and think about things I might otherwise overlook. So, I'm thankful for learning to slow down, enjoy the little things, and be thankful.
